Soslan Asbarov: “Gassiev was a bit forgotten after the fight with Usyk. A meeting with me would be interesting for the public.

Russian boxer and fist fighter Soslan Asbarov told he was ready to stage a 12-round fight against Murata Gasiev .

Asbarov defeated boxing fighter Daud Kelbikhanov by knockout, after which he had several boxing fights under professional and exhibition rules. On September 24, he defeated Dmitry Kudryashov by unanimous decision (25 wins, 5 losses in professional boxing), but the fight did not appear in the official boxer statistics.

– At the beginning of October, you asked your followers on social networks if people were interested in your fight against Murat Gassiev. Is there progress in its organization?

We are getting closer to the goal. You see, we are ready for big and serious fights. This fight is not important for me, not so important. It would just be a good fight for the public. And for Gassiev it would be interesting, because after the fight with Usyk the media almost forgot about him. And the fight with me would have developed the interest of the public, they would have set up a good stage. An interesting duel would be, why not.

– Has anyone come to you with offers?

– There are no plans yet, I have other fights. I have some plans for February-March, now I have Alexei Papin. But I think that by the end of 2023 it is possible to organize a fight with Gassiev.

– Have you ever met in person?

No, we never spoke to each other.

– Why is the current Gassiev dangerous for you?

– Fast, striking. Calmly boxing, but just as calmly can hit.

– Are you ready to face a fight in 12 rounds with him?

– I’ll be ready. Am I ready now? I will have a different preparation and we will approach it differently if we organize everything. But I will be ready.

Gassiev, 29, was a WBA and IBF professional boxing champion (up to 90.7kg), but lost both of his belts in the World Boxing Super Series final in July 2018. After that, Gassiev had three professional fights in 2020, 2021 and 2022, winning by knockout against all opponents.
