July 19, 2018, 12:43 p.m.

WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev expressed his opinion about the Usyk-Gassiev fight. "Usyk is a very strong boxer in terms of skills. He has fast legs and hands.

Usyk sometimes stays before the opponent and this can give Gassiev a chance to land a powerful punch.
