Russian boxer Murat Gassiev (26-1, 19 KOs), former world champion, said he wants the rematch with the Ukrainian Alexander Usik (17-0, 13 KO):
“I have four fights in my career that I especially remember: with Denis Lebedev, when I became world champion, then I had a successful defense with Krzysztof Wlodarczyk, and then joined belt against Unieron Dorticos.
Well, the battle for the title of absolute champion Alexander Usyk. It would be great to have a rematch with Mustache. But today we have a little different way.
For me personally fury number one in the heavyweight division. This is non-standard and awkward boxer who constantly moves, provokes. In the second fight Deontay Wilder underestimated the fury. Tyson is not like the others. He’s going to create difficulties. For someone that Boxing may seem awkward, but I like to watch him box. If fury is in good shape, it is very hardy. Povetkin? If this is of interest to fans and fans of Boxing, then why not for this fight.
The cancellation of the fight with Forrest? I have not had a good sparring partner, and offered weak opponents. I would not be able to be well prepared to enter the battle. Now were gearing up for may, and then because of the pandemic, were cancelled or postponed event. Bad luck of some kind. Once the virus will immediately be clear on the date, and it will be a battle. My main goal is to become a heavyweight Champ, at least according to one version
