Former World Heavyweight Champion Murat Gassiev discussed a lengthy out-of-the-ring downtime, as well as his opinion on his rival Kevin Johnson, with whom he will have his debut heavyweight title on October 31 in Sochi.
“My pause, to be honest, has dragged on. More than two years. But now I feel very good, the mood is good, I want to get into the ring as soon as possible and please all the fans. Thank God, all injuries have passed, and the general condition is positive.
He (Johnson) should never be underestimated. I take him very seriously, as, in principle, to any of my opponents. I’m getting ready and tuned in, “the REN TV channel quotes Gassiev as saying.
We will remind, earlier Denis Lebedev weighed the chances of Gassiev in the fight with Kevin Johnson.
