‘When we went to the locker room, the local doctor came up to inspect,’ he added.

‘And Usyk felt some discomfort in his upper jaw and the doctor said anything could happen and this is a very sensitive area so you need to be inspected as fast as possible.

‘The doctor insisted it has to happen very fast and I came up to Usyk and said, “listen, we need to skip press conference because the doctor is pushing us hard and we need to go as soon as possible, the ambulance is prepared for the drive”.

‘But Usyk said “guys, listen we need to comply with our obligations, we have the press conference, let’s go to the hospital after the press conference”.

‘Then, again after more discussions with the doctor, (it was decided) we can’t go to the press conference because the doctor is pushing.’
