Usyk: On Saturday, People Will See Everything From Me

Aleksandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev entertained a big crowd at Tuesday’s public workout in Moscow.

Usyk, however, did surprisingly not do any of the usual skipping, shadow boxing or pad work, but instead waved and bowed in front of the hundreds of fans at the Oceania Shopping Mall.

Even though Usyk is fighting in his opponents home country there was a lot of noisy support for the Ukrainian.

“I came, entertained the crowd a bit and did some interviews, but I did not show any boxing today,” said Usyk. “You must keep people hungry, not overfeed them. On Saturday people will see everything!”

Murat Gassiev did the classic workout and threw t-shirts into an ecstatic crowd.

“It was a good training in front of a lot of people, but I am looking forward to seeing many more on Saturday!”

200 journalists from all over the world have accreditation for Saturday’s final at the Olympic Sports Complex in Moscow. Over 10.000 tickets have been sold and 20.000 are expected for the historic Cruiserweight final.

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=SniXSniPe;18945694]This is a fight I am highly anticipating. An undisputed match up with two very talented fighters. Gassiev is young enough to come back from a loss, as I expect Usyk to win a close decision (maybe 116-112ish). Sucks one…

Cassiev is the man who beat the man who beat the man. Really!?

Gassiev fought such a good fight against Dorticos that I think this is at least a 50-50. I can’t see Usyk being so gung-ho and taking huge bombs in every round but he does leave himself open and doesn’t look…
