The Klitschko Brothers’ K2 Promotions have inked highly regarded Olympic heavyweight gold medalist and amateur world champion Alexander Usyk of Ukraine. It was announced at a press conference that Usyk will make his pro debut on November 9 in Kiev.

Alexander Usyk: “It is vitally important for me to debut in Ukraine. I visited the USA and UK, but K2 offered me the best option. I am happy about that and will proudly represent it sharing my success with my compatriots. I will come to America soon, but to pick up the champion belts”.

Vitali Klitschko: I am convinced that Ukrainian boxing fans will enjoy his charisma and boxing skills for a long time. We keep our fists for hearing the Ukrainian anthem worldwide in the nearest future while Alexander would be disputing the world title. I am sure that his talent, ardor and purposefulness will easily make it happen.

Alexander Krassyuk: This is the biggest signing for K2 within its history with the most talented and bright prospect in heavyweight. Alexander was born the same day with Muhammad Ali and this is not the coincidence. With his skills and experience we expect a very impetuous launch of his career and within a couple of years Usyk will gain the right to fight for the world title.
