Usyk and Gassiev hit the scales



Aleksandr Usyk (89,9 kg) and Murat Gassiev (89,9 kg) made weight ahead of Saturday’s Ali Trophy Final at the Olimpiyskiy Sports Complex in Moscow.

Usyk and Gassiev weighed in facing hundreds of Ukrainian and Russian fans in front of the Rossiya Theatre at the Pushkinskaya Square in the Russian capital.

“Thanks to everyone who came today for this weigh-in and to all fans who support me and the greatest sport in the world,“ said Gassiev.

“I am very excited for my next fight. I don’t know what will happen tomorrow night, I can’t see the future. I expect a hard fight and a good fight for all fans.”

Aleksandr Usyk: “My birthday is the same as Muhammad Ali’s and when I heard about this tournament I thought I would betray myself if I didn’t participate. Now I am looking forward to the final!”

The Ali Trophy Cruiserweight Final is guaranteed to produce fireworks and the winner of Usyk-Gassiev will be the first boxer ever to win the Muhammad Ali Trophy and unify the cruiserweight titles in the four-belt era.

The belts on the line will be the WBO, WBC, IBF and WBA Super and RING Magazine’s vacant cruiserweight championship strap.
