Ukrainian world champion in heavy weight under version WBO and WBC Oleksandr Usyk (14-0, 11 KO’s) has commented on the rumors about the failure of the high-profile fight with Murat by Gassieva (26-0, 19 KO’s).
Today it was reported that Gassiev is the battle with the Mustache on 21 July in Russia orbexilum with unbeaten American Andrew Tabiti (16-0, 13 KO’s). The Ukrainians denied this rumor and confirmed its focus on the fight with the champion from South Ossetia.
“That fight with Murat did not take place — a lie. My training is, team Assembly. Is this some kind of “bullet” on the Internet, all nonsense. Some people say that I was scared, but it’s not true. I’m not easily scared. We’re getting ready. The problem is that probably among the organizers of WBSS someone can not agree on the place of the battle. Naturally begin to look for the guilty in the face of me and my company, saying that we refuse to go somewhere.
My job is to train, get in the ring and good Boxing. I’ll tell you, I absolutely without a difference where, with whom and when to box. I need a belt Gassieva. This fight needs me and Murat. I’m ready to go at any point of the globe and to fight,” said Barbel during a broadcast on his page in Instagram.
The winner of the fight Alexander Usik – Murat Gassiev should become the absolute world champion in the heavyweight division (WBA, WBO, WBC, IBF, IBO and The Ring), to win the Cup, Mohammed Ali and to obtain $ 10 million in prize money.
