Albanian heavyweight champion Nuri Seferi has a high opinion of the fighting qualities of his opponent, Russian Murat Gassiev, with whom he will have to share the ring on October 31st.
Recall that initially Gassiev was supposed to box with Kevin Johnson, but the American decided to abandon the fight due to problems with his passport. Then, Sefer Seferi was found to replace the ex-contender for the WBC title, but after a couple of days, the Albanian boxer was forced to quarantine, because he trained in the same gym with boxers who had COVID-19.
“The name of Gassiev is known all over the world, I respect and honor him as a boxer. I watched almost all of his fights, he is an excellent fighter, he is completely devoted to the ring. He is an excellent, best boxer in the world. It is an honor for me to fight such a boxer. He is – iron man, I am Albanian Tyson. It will be a super-duel in Sochi, the public will like it, “REN TV quotes Nuri Seferi as saying.
