What did Amir Khan say about Oleksandr Usyk’s weight?

Amir Khan confirmed Usyk’s weight gain was true when quizzed about it by talkSPORT.

The former champion replied: “Yeah it’s true.

“I think I must have told that secret to someone and then that went into the media.

“He looked in great shape. He looked a lot bigger and lot thicker. Some people put on weight and they’re a bit soft still, he was solid. Honestly, he felt strong, and he put the weight on well.

“He says he’s put on 15 kilos of muscle since the last fight. Now is that going to slow him down? I don’t think so. I’ve seen him shadow boxing, seen him on the pads, he looked really quick, great footwork he has.”
