Oleksandr Usyk’s footwork is magic not just inside the ring, but also on the dance floor. This is what we witnessed after Usyk was captured spending a wholesome evening with close friends and wife Yekaterina Usyk. The Ukrainian boxer is currently enjoying the peak of his boxing career, having beaten Anthony Joshua to emerge as the new unified heavyweight champion of the world last year.
Looking dapper in white and black, Usyk’s footwork on the dance floor made even her wife Yekaterina Usyk struggle to match the steps. One of the modest athletes to ever step inside the ring, Oleksandr Usyk’s popularity continues to grow.
Born on 17 January 1987, the 35-year-old boxer has achieved almost everything that there is to achieve in the world of boxing. While the rematch against Anthony Joshua awaits, it won’t be wrong to say that Usyk has already left a legacy that will be remembered for years to come. After having dominated the cruiserweight division, the Ukrainian boxer moved up a weight class and is currently 3-0 in the mighty heavyweight division with wins over the likes of Derek Chisora and Anthony Joshua.
Oleksandr Usyk and Yekaterina Usyk steals hearts
One can say that Usyk’s inability to properly converse in English has alluded us from knowing the Ukrainian boxer behind the boxing gloves. While he may be a stone-cold killer inside the boxing ring, Oleksandr Usyk is quite a jovial outside of it. In the past, Usyk has entertained boxing fans around the world with his witty humor and his crazy walk-out costumes.

He is also a very private person, and while information about his personal life is public, Usyk doesn’t really share much about it on his social media handles. On occasions he has showered love for his wife Yekaterina Usyk on the social media platform, it’s hard to deny the romantic that resides inside him.
On the work front, Usyk will fight Anthony Joshua in a rematch for the unified titles next. However, there has been no official announcement. According to reports, we could expect the official announcement in the coming weeks.
