    Can't see Gassiev losing unless, Usyk fights the perfect fight, which means boxing nonstop and not getting tired.

    Both men have recently fought. I appreciate that these guys aren't taking a whole year off like so many other guys do. This is how boxing should be!

    I think that's because of the tournament forcing it more than anything else. The sad thing is that one of these guys is going to get a loss on his record.

    But more importantly, we will have a White man as the undisputed Cruiserweight Champ, with the prospect of moving to Heavy in a year or so.

    If you guys have not watched the Gassiev/Dorticos fight, by all means check it out. That Dorticos guy is a frickin monster, yet Gassiev just picked him apart. It was genius!!

    The fight will be held in Moscow on July 21, it was delayed due to an injury to Usyk elbow.

    This will be a truly amazing fight and really it has to happen because these guys are the best in the division. But, I hope it's not an absolute war...the kind that shortens careers.

    Meanwhile deplorable Bob Arum and his stable of black fighters take years and years to build a fight between top fighters. Using every tactic in the book to never actually have the number 1 fight number 2.

    I have to go with Gassiev on this one. Usyk is an excellent boxer, but he can't break an egg. Gassiev has real knockout power.
