Dorticos: I Want To Destroy Gassiev, He Will Face a Real Man!

Unbeaten IBF Cruiserweight World Champion Murat Gassiev (25-0, 18 KOs) delivered a dominant third round knockout Saturday night against former champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (53-4-1, 37 KOs)in their World Boxing Super Series quarter-final matchup from Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. and on AUDIENCE Network.
 
With the victory, Gassiev sets up a WBSS cruiserweight semi-final showdown with WBA champion Yunier Dorticos, who was in attendance Saturday night.
 
"Dorticos is a very good fighter with great experience," said Gassiev. "He's undefeated and I can't wait to give all the boxing fans the big gift of a great fight against Dorticos."

"I really wanted Gassiev to win, because he's going to taste the power of a real man against me," said Dorticos. "His opponent tonight was past his time. I'm ready to show him what a champion looks like and give him a challenge he's never faced before. I want to take his belt. I want to get in the ring and destroy Gassiev."
 
Gassiev stalked his opponent around the ring for much of the three round fight, looking to land a big combination while Wlodarczyk was steadfastly in retreat mode. The former two-time champion threw very little other than his jab and was unable to break through and hurt Gassiev at any point in the action.
 
In round three, Gassiev closed the distance and began to land on Wlodarczyk eventually shooting a left uppercut and then left hook to the body combo that ended with Wlodaczyk laying on the canvas. Referee Albert Brown officially counted Wlodarczyk out at 1:57 of the third round.
 
In the WBSS cruiserweight reserve match, Mateusz Masternak (40-4, 26 KOs) stopped Stivens Bujaj (16-2-1, 11 KOs) on the advice of the ringside doctor after seven rounds of action.
 
"I got stronger as the fight went on," said Masternak. "I was ready to go hard rounds and use my attack to overwhelm him. Once I started using combinations I was very effective in hurting him. That made the difference for me."

[QUOTE=A.K;18155422]Gassiev outboxes him if he manages not to get KO’d.[/QUOTE] That's the only way Dorticos can win it, because he's nothing to worry about after 5-6 round, and he was getting stunned easily in amateurs
