Oleksandr is an Olympic champion, an undisputed world heavyweight champion among professionals, a holder of the Muhammad Ali Trophy, and a mandatory contender for the WBO heavyweight title.
He has been boxing for half his life: the 33-year-old athlete started training when he was 15. Having started his professional boxing career in 2013, Oleksandr has fought 18 fights without a single defeat, winning 13 of them by knockout.
Not only does Oleksandr dedicate his time and efforts to his sports career, but also to business. He runs the Usyk-17 Promotions company, sportswear and accessories label Usyk-17, and co-manages the LOMUS clothing brand with famous boxer Vasily Lomachenko.
Oleksandr has always been a big fan of video games. Talking about his partnership with WePlay Esports, Oleksandr noted: “Competitive gaming is both a popular hobby for many young people and a promising direction for investors. I chatted with Yura Lazebnikov and Oleg Krot, they told me the specifics of the industry, and I decided to try my hand in this business. Besides, I played games before, and now I'm back to this hobby.”
Its worldwide presence (WePlay Esports has offices in the USA, China, and Ukraine) and expertise allow WePlay Esports to provide innovative and advanced products and services for the global esports, media, and entertainment markets.
Managing partners emphasize that the launch of the WePlay Ultimate Fighting League would open up extra opportunities for those who want to enter the professional esports scene. Gaming and sports fans, in turn, get more entertainment content.
“We decided to create a company that would target the fighting game community while allowing a wider audience to appreciate our creative approach to events. Fighting game fans are often passionate about esports, and we offer spectacular and high-quality content and production that are traditional for WePlay Esports. We are ready to surprise and revolutionize the esports industry once again,” Lazebnikov noted.
Oleg Krot talks about business perspectives: “The new company team will develop WePlay Ultimate Fighting League and diversify the pool of supported esports disciplines.” He also added that these activities go in line with the media holding company’s global goal to expand its presence in North America with its vibrant fighting game community.
