Murat Gassiev Talks Abel Sanchez and More – Russia’s undefeated IBF cruiserweight champion Murat Gassiev has a title unification bout against WBA champ Yunier Dorticos on February 3rd.
The bout is slated to take place in Gassiev’s native Russia and is a semi-final bout in the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight tournament that kicked off in September of last year. In October, Gassiev made short work of Poland’s Krzysztof Wlodarczyk in the tourney’s opening round. He stopped his rival with a third round KO to move to 25-0 overall as a pro. In Dorticos, he now faces a likewise undefeated champion who won his quarter final bout by KO.
Though he is from Russia, he has moved to the United States and now trains with the well-respected Abel Sanchez.
