Oleksandr Usyk ranks among the most prime heavyweights of modern era boxing. Formerly a cruiserweight, Usyk stepped up in the heavyweight division a couple of years back. Since then, he’s put on colossal performances to lure the fans and eventually expand his stardom.

That said, Usyk has now gone a notch higher outside the boxing world, as he’s inked a deal with Blockchayn Labs, a hub of athletic NFTs.

Also, his brand new NFT collection will be available for the fans shortly. The Ukrainian boxer shared this news on his official Twitter handle. He wrote, “I am very excited to announce my 1st Official NFT Collection which will be dropping soon! To find out more about NFTs and my collection – follow @blockchaynlabs.io to stay up to date”

Almost every boxer today ends up finding lucrative sponsorship deals because of their persona and fan base. And Usyk has recently pinned himself on that list. As he is one of the most humble boxing stars at present, that is predominantly why he has a great connection with his fans.

Despite all his brand endorsements and sponsorship deals, the 34-year-old prioritizes his love for boxing. With his unmatched skillsets and astonishing power, Usyk has become a household name in the sport in no time.

Despite having ascended to the pinnacle of one division, he is still hungry for more, and with time, he’s only looking to add to his boxing resume. For now, Usyk is unaligned with any opponent. However, a bout against Anthony Joshua may be imminent.
