Murat Gassiev signs with Matchroom
Eddie Hearn has signed former unified Crusierweight champion Murat Gassiev, who’ll make his heavyweight debut in June.
Gassiev hasn’t fought since his disappointing one-sided loss to Oleksandr Usyk in the WBSS final which crowned Usyk the undisputed Crusierweight champion. After that fight, he suffered another setback which involved surgery to his left shoulder. However, now over his first career defeat and 100% percent healthy, he’s ready to take on a new division.
He’ll join the likes of champions Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and top contenders Tyson Fury, Joesph Parker, Dillian Whyte, Luis Ortiz among others. It’ll be interesting to see how Gassiev fares in his new division.
His opponent has yet to be determined. 3kingsboxing.com will continue to monitor this story and provide updates as they become available.
