OLEKSANDR USYK is keeping his eye on the ball ahead of his second heavyweight bout.
The Ukrainian star, 33, is due to fight Dereck Chisora at the O2 Arena on May 23 after stepping up to the top division.
And as he continues his preparations in the gym, he made sure to spend some time working on his hand-eye co-ordination.
Unbeaten Usyk shared a clip on his Instagram account standing on a balancing board and juggling three tennis balls – all with apparent ease.
It is not the first time Usyk has revealed some of his impressive training methods.
Before fighting Chazz Witherspoon in his heavyweight debut, he was filmed dancing during a warm-up.
The twirling moves – swinging his arms in front of the mirror in a basketball jersey and luminous yellow tights – is known as the hopak, a traditional Ukrainian dance.
Usyk’s bout with Chisora was due to take place in March but was put back to May after the Ukrainian suffered an elbow injury.
Usyk is mandatory challenger for Anthony Joshua’s WBO title but will first fight British star Chisora, with AJ taking on Kubrat Pulev – his IBF mandatory challenger.
British veteran Chisora, 36, hasn’t stepped in the ring since his fourth-round stoppage of David Price in October.
But former undisputed cruiserweight champion Usyk, 33, will be determined to prove he has what it takes at heavyweight.
However, the fight is in jeopardy if the UK government ban mass gatherings in an attempt to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
