The fight had to take place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on May 11, but it was delayed for an indefinite term due to Usyk's elbow injury. Oleksandr is confident that the upcoming bout will be "very cool and bright," according to Sport Arena.
"Gassiev is a strong guy, young, ambitious. The fight will turn out very cool and bright. I absolutely do not care that he is 24 years old, and I'm 31. I was also 24 years once," the Ukrainian said.
The winner of the fight will hold five championship belts (WBA, WBC, WBO, IBF and The Ring Magazine) and win the Muhammad Ali trophy and a check for $10 million.
