It has become quiet around Murat Gassiev. The Russian no longer, since July of 2018 in the Ring. At the time, the 26-Year-old lost in the final of the World Boxing Super Series Oleksandr Usyk clear on points. He subsequently announced his move to heavyweight. However, due to numerous injuries and the Corona-crisis Gassiev is still waiting for his debut in the Premier class.

His Coach, Abel Sanchez, who worked in the past years, with Gennady Golovkin, supervised Gassiev for the past seven years. “At the time, he weighed 192 pounds. I saw his physique and his hands, he has incredible hands,“ recalls Sanchez, in an Interview with Sky Sports. “I said at the time that this man is going to dominate the Cruiserweight division and then also a very good heavyweight will be.” According to Sanchez had to hide Gassiev, with his strike force against any heavyweight.

Because of the Power of the Coach expect that Gassiev will beat compared to Usyk in the king class. “Has Usyk to enforce the body’s strength against adult heavyweight? He has no big Punch. But in this Limit, you need something to intimidate opponents and to push back,“ explains Sanchez.

The confidence in his own protégé, however, is unchanged in size. So Sanchez calls already duels against prominent names and well-gerankte opponent. “I would him. against Adam Kownacki, Robert Helenius or Andy Ruiz jr in the Ring want to send,“ said Sanchez. However, the coach is concerned, that Gassiev had not boxed for two years. “Therefore, there is a build-up fight would be in advance makes sense.”
