"With all my respect to Gassiev, my prediction is victory of Usyk on points with an overwhelming advantage. But, if Murat’s coach sets him up for combat tactically correctly (other than in the battle with Dorticos) and adds a variety of techniques slightly, my forecast may be incorrect.

“In my opinion, there is not much difference where the battle takes place! Especially for an experienced boxer. Fighters go into the ring one on one with the opponent, and what happens outside of it - should not worry them. In addition, in this battle, the judges should be neutral, and the support of the spectators will surely be for both boxers. I think that in this case, when boxers from the post-Soviet countries meet, it's much better to hold a fight in Moscow than in Saudi Arabia, as was planned earlier, or even in Europe or the United States. Many more fans will be able to attend this event, on both sides," Vlasov said.
