It seems that Murat Gassieva continues to pursue evil fate! ..
On October 31, in Sochi, Gassiev (26-1, KO 19) was supposed to make his debut in the heavyweight division in a duel against ring veteran American Kevin Johnson (35-17-1, KO 19).
However, according to the Russian Boxing Federation, Johnson unexpectedly abandoned the fight with the Russian, and now he will be replaced by the representative of Albania, 41-year-old Sefer Seferi (24-3-1, KO 22), who has boxed with Tyson Fury and Manuel in the past Charrom.
Let us remind you that Murat Gassiev spent his last fight in July 2018, losing by a judicial decision to the Ukrainian boxer Alexander Usik in the final of the World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) tournament. After this fight, the Russian decided to change the weight category, but his debut in the heavyweight division was constantly postponed due to various reasons.
