I said that if there is an option to move in the other direction, let's move in another direction. Well, if there are no options, this is a sport - we will fight. We are friends with Sergey.

Interim WBC light heavyweight champion Alexander Gvozdyk shared his opinion about the WBSS final between Alexander Usyk and Murat Gassiev, which will be in Moscow on July 21. "I'm curious how Usyk will fight. He is able to box so that he can simply "take Gassiev to school. Alexander has shown this many times. If he chooses tactics, like in the fight with Briedis, then it will be hard. There will be an opportunity to catch him. And so, it seems to me, Alexander is better on his feet and speed. I bets are on Usyk. I think, he will win on points," said Gvozdyk.
