It was a boxer-puncher contest, with Usyk jabbing and moving and Gassiev pressing and looking to land hard shots. Usyk had a rapid-fire workrate and outworked the hard-punching Gassiev throughout the fight. Scores were 120-108, 119-109, 119-109.

Usyk now has all the belts, plus the WBSS Muhammad Ali Trophy presented to him by Lonnie Ali. As for future plans, Usyk called out Tony Bellew.
