Weights: Murat Gassiev 230.6-Pounds, Nuri Seferi 225.1

Former unified cruiserweight world champion Murat Gassiev (26-1, 19 KOs) is about to make his heavyweight debut in his first competitive fight in more than two years.

Gassiev, 27, seems fit for a new weight class as he has weighed in at a solid 230.6 pounds. His Saturday opponent Nuri “The Albanian Tyson” Seferi (41-9, 23 KOs), also a former cruiserweight, tipped the scales a shade lighter at 225.1.
