And Jalolov, 28, will be ready and waiting as he vows to mark a new era in the heavyweight division.
He told Probellum: “I think Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world, and Oleksandr Usyk is very good, obviously, too.

“Fury for his size, he moves unbelievably. He has unbelievable movement and once again, he is big and heavy. Usyk is a great boxer, but obviously he’s small for the weight class.
“For me, I’m not a hero in Uzbekistan for winning the Olympics, I’m not there yet.
“But once I become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world at that time, maybe they’ll call me a hero.
“Maybe it’s not going to happen tomorrow, but maybe it’s going to be next year or in two years. But God bless, it is going to happen.”

Jalolov has made easy work of his opponents so far but insisted he has more than just power in his arsenal.
He said: “I’m not just a puncher. Of course, I can punch, and I know that I have power because every time I land, people go down.
“But I have much more than that. I have a great footwork, feeling of distance and timing and speed.
“And my style is not to take nine shots to land 10. I’m not working like that. Instead of winning 10-9, I’ll win 1-0.
“I’ll land one, but I’m not going to get hit and that’s my goal. Boxing is about hit and don’t get hit.”Bakhodir Jalolov has 11 KOs in 11 fights[/caption]
