WBC grant Usyk ‘Champion in Recess’ status

Usyk vs Hunter

The WBC board of governors has voted in favour of granting Champion in Recess status to Oleksandr Usyk.

The move means that Usyk will maintain his rights as a WBC Champion, while also granting him time to recover from a recent hand injury, which forced him to withdraw from his heavyweight debut against Carlos Takam.
