Ukraine’s WBO heavyweight world champion Olexandr Usyk said he would like to go for the bout against the undefeated Russian Murat Gassiev. Boxingnews.com.ua wrote this on Monday, December 26.
‘There’s no way I fight against Damir Beljo, because he’s going to face David Haye. Denis Lebedev expects his next fight versus Beibut Shumenov or Yunier Dorticos. As for Murat Gassiev…if the promoters can arrange that, I’d love to fight him,’ Usyk said.
