Alexander Shlemenko – about Gassiev’s victory: “I don’t want to offend Murat, but his opponent was not on his level”

Russian MMA fighter Alexander Shlemenko spoke about Murat Gassiev’s debut performance as part of the heavyweight division.

We will remind, last evening Gassiev at the beginning of the first round knocked out 43-year-old boxer from Albania Nuri Seferi, who could not impose decent competition on the Russian.

“Congratulations to Murat Gassiev on his victory, on his return, after his injuries, after his problems. Yes, the fight was very short-lived, the only thing is that I don’t want to offend Murat Gassiev, but it seems to me that his opponent was not at his level. Murat, it seems to me , was well prepared and the logical result – literally the first series and a knockout, with which I congratulate him. I would like to continue to see Murat’s fights with more serious opponents, “Shlemenko noted in a video posted on the REN TV website.
