The boxer also dedicated his victory to the Ukrainian military

Newly crowned EBU European heavyweight champion Alexander Zakhozhy (19-0, 15 KOs) commented on winning the title in a fight against the German Granit Shaly (15-1, 5 KOs). The Ukrainian boxer also told how this success will affect his future career.

“This victory is a big step in my sports career. It opens up new opportunities and perspectives, increases my confidence and recognition in the boxing world. Thanks to this victory, I can compete with stronger opponents and continue my path to the world title.”

“First and foremost, the plan was to get in the ring and have fun. We have carried out powerful preparations for this battle from all sides. We understood that if the battle went the full distance, they wouldn’t give me the victory, so I was determined to get a knockout.”

“Of course, the words I said after the fight were from the heart. Our military, now defending our state, are the main heroes of our time. They give their lives so that we can live in peace and security. Their example gives me strength and motivation to raise the Ukrainian banner in all international arenas. I want my victory to bring them some hope and support during these difficult times.”

Zahozhiy knocked out Shala in the second round and became the owner of the vacant EBU European champion belt. The fight took place in Charlottenburg, Germany.
