Beterbiev and Gassiev may fight on July 22 in Moscow
Arthur Beterbiev and Murat Gassiev may fight on July 22 as part of International Boxing Day in Moscow. This was reported by the Secretary General of the Russian Boxing Federation Umar Kremlev.
Last July Gassiev lost in the cruiserweight final of the World Boxing Series to the Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk and lost his IBF and WBA titles. Beterbiev is the IBF light heavyweight champion and has held the title since November 2017.
“Gassiev’s next fight is scheduled for April. We have an agreement that he will perform at Boxing Day on July 22 in Moscow. We also plan that Beterbiev will be able to perform there,” the federation official said.
