Russian team Murat Gassieva in any case will achieve the right to hold a rematch with Ukraine Alexander Usik, Secretary General of the Russian Boxing Federation Umar Kremlev told RIA Novosti.
Usik on Saturday in Manchester (England) defeated England's Brit Tony Belle in the eighth round and retained his championship title. Ukraine won 16th victory in the professional ring and 12th – by KO. In July, in Moscow, Usik with a unanimous decision won Gassiev in the final of the World Boxing Super Series and became the absolute world champion in the first heavyweight title.
"It's clear that Usyk will win. Bellew is not a competitor for him. The two fighters showed a good fight, but after the fourth round everything became clear, the Kremlin said by telephone. – We will definitely achieve revenge with Usikov, regardless of the weight at which he will be held. Murat must fight in the spring, after that we will start talking (with the Usik team). "
