“It was an intense, fast-paced battle from first bell to last, with both men turning in superlative performances, demonstrating impressive stamina, conditioning and durability. Many, if not most, of the rounds were razor close and difficult to call as there was virtually no clinching or wrestling and both men maintained a relentless pace. Usyk appeared the more aggressive and busier of the two overall, while Briedis countered effectively, was more economical and often landed the more telling blows. Both fighters mixed up their punches well to both body and head and for long stretches neither had a decided edge.” From “Fight Report: Usyk vs Briedis” by Neil Crane
