Oleksandr Usyk Net Worth: Stock History, Career Earnings for the Heavyweight Boxing Champion

After dominating the heavyweight division, Oleksandr Usyk quickly rose to prominence at heavyweight. Now, having spent time defending Ukraine, he will look to continue to maintain control of the division.

Usyk made his professional debut in 2013 after winning a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics. He won the WBO cruiserweight title in 2016. In the 2017-18 World Boxing Super Series tournament, he defeated Marco Huck, Mairis Briedis for the WBC cruiserweight title and Murat Gassiev in the final for the WBA, IBF and The Ring cruiserweight titles. His only defense as undisputed champion was a knockout victory over Tony Bellew in 2018.

Usyk moved up to heavyweight in 2019. After beating Chazz Witherspoon and Derek Chisora, he defeated Anthony Joshua last September to become the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion.

While a rematch between Usyk and Joshua is scheduled, it has almost been suspended entirely. Usyk returned to Ukraine and was one of many combat sports stars who decided to take up arms against Russian aggression. After a few months in the country, he was able to leave to train for a future fight against Joshua.
