At first I wasn't such a fan of the WSB but it grew on me quickly. Tbh the experience Usyk got fighting Majidov, Nistor and Joyce over 5 rounds without headgear is probably far better experience than Price's first 3 years as a pro.
With that experience and his success Oleksandr should go to HW but everything has said he's turning pro at CW which is a disappointment. I suppose adj.usting to 12 rounds against CW's would be better than doing it against HW's. Fight some top 30 guys right away and go for a title by 10 fights, defend it a few times gain world class experience than move up. If he stays at CW more than 2 years he's wasting his career.
