Murat Gassiev: “Dorticos is a well-schooled fighter. He has many amateur fights, good speed, and fast hands. He is a great opponent and I have prepared for 12 tough rounds. The World Boxing Super Series is a great tournament that gives me the opportunity to unify all the cruiserweight titles. On Saturday I am going to take another step towards that dream in front of my proud countrymen.”

Yunier Dorticos: “On a personal level I have no problems with Gassiev, but right now he has a problem. He has to find a defense against the missiles that are going to land on that big head of his. Gassiev will learn to respect ‘The KO Doctor’ on Saturday night. I will put on another show on Saturday for the fans in Russia and around the world. I have nothing to worry about. Gassiev has.”
