IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk has achieved his dream of becoming a world champion in biggest weight class.
Last month, he outboxed Anthony Joshua over twelve rounds for a unanimous decision victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
For now Uysk is relaxing and spending time with his family.
Unlike Andy Ruiz, who shocked the world when he stopped Joshua in seven rounds in 2019, Usyk will not be partying.
"That’s absolutely correct," Usyk said to Daily Mail. "I’m not going to celebrate it like Andy Ruiz did! Everyone is enjoying the flavor of wine and I keep enjoying the flavor of still water."
Following his big victory, Ruiz partied like a rock star and began training camp very late. He was overweight, sluggish and not fully prepared when he fought Joshua six months later in Saudi Arabia - which allowed Joshua to regain his belts with a lopsided twelve round unanimous decision.
The 34-year-old Usyk on the other hand, is taking it easy.
"I’ve been spending time with my kids," Usyk said. "I’ve been fishing, walking around doing nothing. Just relaxing… nothing changed much. I keep thanking the Lord for everything I have in my life. I keep cheering up, loving life and spending my time doing things I love.
"My son plays football. He is playing in defense, sometimes he’s moving to forward and he dreams to become world champion."
Joshua has already exercised an immediate rematch clause, with the second fight slated to take place on a date in March.
The British star recently traveled to the United States, where he was spotted with several high profile trainers.
Usyk is not concerned with the possibility of Joshua adding a new veteran trainer to his team.
"I don’t think anything about this because it’s Anthony’s business – let him do whatever he wants. Thank God I have everything (sorted) in my team – every member is in place so it’s all good," Usyk said.
"I was just thanking the Lord that everything is good in my life."
