IBO President ed Levine was named the best boxers at the end of last year:
“I will name the four best boxers of the year. First, this is Anthony Joshua. The Briton won some amazing victories and changed the dynamics in heavy weight. Who is the main champion of this division.
Secondly, it’s Oleksandr Usyk. This is a gorgeous and classy boxer with a knockout blow. Thirdly, it’s Vasyl Lomachenko. This boxer has it all, he will be a champion for a long time.
And fourthly, Jarrett Hurd, he has a huge potential. Call him fight Lara, the fight of the year”.
Recall that in 2018 Oleksandr Usyk (16-0, 12 KO’s) became the absolute world champion in heavy weight, and Vasyl Lomachenko (12-0, 9 KO’s) went up in light weight and produced two titles – the WBO and WBA.
