Next week at Olympic Stadium in Moscow, Russia the finals of the World Boxing Super Series takes place between unified champions, Oleksandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev. But according to Usyk's manager, Egis Klimas some issues still exist.
"The organizers haven't organize completely the travel, the security, the hotel locations as far as I know and we're only one week away from a fight," said Klimas on Friday morning.
"So I would say they need to put something together if they want to see us in Moscow."
Asked if there is a deadline for all the logistics to be worked out, Klimas told BoxingScene.com - "Before we step on the plane and I believe Oleksandr is scheduled to fly Monday That's where the deadline can be."
The winner will be the first to lift the Muhammad Ali Trophy, becoming the undisputed unified lineal cruiserweight champion of the world, the first time in history the feat will have been achieved.
