Biography

This southpaw was born on the 17th of January 1987 in Simferopol, Crimean Oblast, Ukrainian SSR, the Soviet Union. We’re thankful that this young man’s life isn’t as hard to understand as this region’s geo-politics. He wanted to be a professional footballer, but around 2002 decided to switch to boxing. Whilst we’ve heard of numerous players changing sports, we’ve never actually heard of one going the complete opposite way at an age when they should have been just focusing on the one thing they were actually doing.

Nonetheless, this switch was much needed for this young man. He began competing as an amateur and decided to go pro in 2013. He was 26 by then. His debut fight was against Felipe Romero on the 9th of November 2013. We aren’t sure if this man thought that he had to prove something to the world because he has been unstoppable since then. Participating in 19 fights since that day in 2013, he has not lost a single fight to date. 13 of his wins have been by KO. In hindsight, his decision in 2002 doesn’t seem like a bad one after all. However, we’re not sure if his brain would agree. After all, it wouldn’t have endured as much damage had he just kept going with footy.

Oleksandr Usyk Wife

This man didn’t have any problems remaining Ukrainian after Crimea was annexed by ‘you know who’. He didn’t have any trouble with his love life either. The moment he laid eyes on Kateryna, he knew that she was the one for him. The two of them began dating soon after.

Who is Oleksandr Usyk currently dating?

An Orthodox Christian, this boxer knew that he was going to marry Kat instinctively. There wasn’t going to be any swapping around this time. Life isn’t football, eh! The man kept his word and has remained truthful to that lady. However, he doesn’t speak about her much in public.

Family: Parents, Siblings & Children

His mum Nadezhda is from the Chernihiv region, and his dad Alexander was from the Sumy area of Ukraine. Both these places are in the northern part of the country. His folks met in Crimea and decided to marry each other. This was Nadezhda’s second marriage. She had a daughter (Victoria) from the first one, but the boxer’s dad didn’t mind it one bit. Alexander used to be in the military and went on to work in security whilst his mum remained a homemaker. His dad’s no more now. This boxer’s marriage to Kateryna has given him three beautiful kids. We heard that he’s quite protective of them.

It looks like he has got his entire family’s food for himself. He’s such a glutton. – via Instagram

For now, this gentleman’s net worth is estimated to be about $8 million.
