On Saturday night, Oleksandr Usyk unified the cruiserweight division by beating Murat Gassiev by unanimous decision.

Despite facing a hostile crowd in Moscow, Usyk controlled the fight with his jab to add Gassiev's WBA and IBF titles to his own WBC and WBO belts.

Gassiev landed some heavy body shots when he got inside Usyk's reach, but started to tire and the Ukrainian was utterly dominant in the later rounds as Gassiev swung wild haymakers.

Usyk, a former Olympic gold medalist, holds all four major titles after just 15 professional fights, all of which he won.

[QUOTE=HeadShots;18957564]Usyk has insane stamina because he has very little explosive output. He's like a Cruiser Paulie Malignaggi or someone like Meldrick Taylor. They have a lot of speed but 0 power. 5 of his punches is literally like Gassiev's one.…
