Former WBC world champion Grigory Drozd is confident that Murat Gassiev will achieve great success after his transition to the heavyweight division.
Note that on October 31, Gassiev will have a duel with ex-title challenger Kevin Johnson.
“The main event, the most important expectation is to see Murat in the ring. We all see his physical form on social networks that he posts. Of course, he has become larger, more powerful and, in fact, has become a real heavyweight,” Drozd said in an interview with REN TV …
“Of course, Murat can and is ready to claim the highest places in this division. The main thing is that he should not be bothered by injuries.”
Drozd also called Gassiev’s rival “a strong middle peasant” who, due to his experience, is able to cause problems for the Russian. However, Drozd has no doubts that Gassiev should be successful.
We will remind, earlier Denis Lebedev weighed the chances of Gassiev in the fight with Kevin Johnson.
