Oleksandr Usyk, the undisputed cruiserweight boxing champion

The fame of esports is getting closer and closer to traditional sports, and I want them to boost each other and gain even more fans around the world. The collaboration between world boxing champions and esports champions will only help to achieve this goal. Moreover, it is an engaging business and a promising area for investment.

Vasyl Lomachenko, professional boxer, a former world champion in three weight classes, two-time Olympic champion:

Oleksandr and I support and promote sports in different ways. But due to certain physical characteristics, people can not always do traditional sports. On the other hand, esports does not have such restrictions as it has no limits - you can train and compete in the global arena without leaving home. I am glad that together with WePlay Esports we are building opportunities for the new world champions to emerge, the WUFL champions.
