Jesus Christ is my lord – Usyk speaks after defeating Fury

Ukrainian boxing heavyweight champion, Oleksandr Usky has described Jesus Christ as his lord.

Usky said Jesus Christ gave him a gift during his match with British heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury in Saudi Arabia.

Usyk defeated Fury following a split-decision.

Fury began well but was given a standing 10 count and saved by the bell after an Usyk onslaught in the ninth round.

The scorecards gave 115-112 and 114-113 decisions in favour of the Ukrainian, with a third judge scoring it 114-113 to Fury.

But, speaking after the match at the ringside, Usyk said: “I thank God for the help he gave me today because he did give me a lot today. My lord is Jesus Christ.”
