The world champion under version WBO in the first heavyweight Ukrainian Alexander Usik said that would have had a unification fight with IBF champion

According to the inter TV channel, Oleksandr Usyk (11-0, 10 KO’s) intends to begin the unification of the championship belts with a fight against Murat Gassieva (24-0, 17 KO’s).

The Russian won his championship title in the match against compatriot Denis Lebedev less than a month ago, beating him by unanimous decision.

“The fight with Bellew (champion under version WBC, approx.) impossible, because he will fight David Haye. Denis Lebedev to defend belt against official Challenger (they will be the winner of the battle of Shumenov – Dorticos, ed.).

As for Murat Gassieva, if the promoters agree, I would love to have had a fight,” – said Oleksandr Usyk.

Recall that yesterday it was reported that his next fight Gassiev may hold against the former world champion Krzysztof glowacki (26-1, 16 KOs), whose title was taken just after Alexander Usik.
