Usyk, Gassiev Arrive in Moscow - Ready For WBSS Final

Murat Gassiev and Aleksandr Usyk arrived Monday evening in Moscow ahead of the Cruiserweight Ali Trophy Final on July 21 at the Olympic Sports Complex.

“I am looking forward to the final. A final that will bring out the best in boxing. I can’t wait to see my fans in Moscow,” said Usyk.

Gassiev: "I’m in Russia one week before the fight. I’ve never had problems with the acclimatization. Jet-lag is also not a problem. A good nap during the flight and I’m ready to box at the airport. As always I expect a tough fight. I have to be ready for everything and adjust.”

Tickets are still available through official channels for one of the most anticipated fights of the decade, one of the most exciting boxing events in history, with 10.000 being sold up to now and 20.000 spectators expected.

“The exciting build-up for the first Ali Trophy Final ever is entering its most exciting phase," said Kalle Sauerland, Comosa’s Chief Boxing Officer. "This is the moment we have been waiting for.”

“True history and legacy making are at stake and the ‘Winner takes it all’ frase has never been more fitting. On Saturday in Moscow boxing and the world of sport will have a new, true superstar!”

The winner of Usyk-Gassiev will be the first boxer ever to win the Muhammad Ali Trophy and unify the cruiserweight titles in the four belt era.

The belts on the line will be the WBO, WBC, IBF and WBA Super and RING Magazine’s vacant cruiserweight championship strap.

The mouthwatering final will be a key event during a weekend of boxing activities in the Russian capital in celebration of International Boxing Day after Comosa were invited to bring and supervise the first final of The Greatest Prize in Boxing - The Ali Trophy - to the festival of pugilism.

[QUOTE=Andrij;18944437]Yup ! Ukrainian fans also came to conclusion that Usyk´s plan is to stop Gassiev late because he can't rely on judges in Russia if it goes to scorecards.Even a wide points lead could become a robbery.[/QUOTE] just shut it…

[QUOTE=4truth;18944203]Why so late? Seems like you would want at minimum 2 weeks to acclimate for such an important fight.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=Jubei;18944469]Ukraine/Kiev and Moscow/Russiaw are in the exact same time zone and very close to each other, about 500 miles apart.[/QUOTE] Gassiev's…
