Abel Sanchez Says This Guy Will Be A Bit Like Golovkin

Murat GassievHey you guys, Abel Sanchez has done a solid job with Gennady Golovkin, right?

We agree on that; so, I think it prudent that we honor his track record, with the Terry Norris' of the world, and note the rise of Triple G, and thus open our ears an extra measure when he tells us, as he told me the other day, that he's working with another future champ.

Who's that, Abel?

Murat Gassiev is his name, and he fought last night in Russia. Sanchez oversaw the scrap, and saw the 6-3 Russian cruiserweight pick up a TKO1 win, and the IBF intercontinental cruiser crown, over Engin Karakaplan (12-5-1) in a town called Vladikavkaz.

So, how good is this 21 year old?

“He'll be a world champion in three more fights,” Sanchez told me. “He just turned 21, by the time he fights for a world title, in six months, he will be dominant like Golovkin, aggressive, mean and entertaining!”

What the heck is not to like about that?

And so what style doe she fight in?

“My style,” said the Cali based tutor.

And who would he remind us of? “He fights in my style, GGG, JC Sr, Julian Jackson, Terry Norris that fought Donald Curry, this is my first fight with him and the transformation is obvious, he's a stalker, a predator with a purpose and a plan!”

Sanchez said that he isn't signed to any of the usual suspects here in States. “He's with a local group right now, but will break out very soon,” he stated. “Against Karakaplan, he fought in the style I try to teach: aggressive, patient, calculating, destructive and mean…but most of all, entertaining.”

Noted…and again, what's not to like. See you soon, Gassiev…

-Froggy :

deepwater2, I just watched a few of Usyk's fights, and you won't get any argument from me ! The cruiserweights are just his first challenge, he will be a heavyweight about the same time his countryman, Klitschko will retire !

Oleksandr Usyk is the best man in the world at Cruiserweight right now at a record of 5-0. He is a big Lomenchenko .
Usyk is a tremendous fighter. He holds TWO amateur victories over Artur Beterbiev, the 29-year-old Russian light heavyweight who has so many people singing his praises. At 6-0, all by KO's, he is already a 12-round fighter, coming off a destruction of slip-sliding Tavoris Cloud. He now makes his home in Montreal, Canada. Murat Gassiev is a young power-hitter who carries KO drops in both hands. A friend of mine in Russia says he is super impressed with Gassiev and expects big things out of him now that he's with Abel Sanchez. The 6'3" Gassiev is now 19-0 with 13 knockouts. He won a four-round decision in his pro debut in September 2011, then chased that countryman around, begging for a rematch. He got that rematch in September 2013 and beat the guy up, stopping him after the third round. In Gassiev's third fight, Gassive faced a 21-year-old Russian making his pro debut. The guy had dozens of amateur fights and was thought of as a solid pro prospect. Gassiev took a four-round decision from him, but beat him up so badly that the guy never fought again. Usyk. Beterbiev. Gassiev. And many more. The Russians are coming. The Russiand are coming. -Randy G.
