Event Details

Olympic Stadium in Moscow
In one of the biggest fights of 2018, Ukraine’s undefeated WBO and WBC cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (14-0, 11 KOs) will face Russia’s undefeated IBF and WBA champion Murat Gassiev (26-0-1, 19 KOs) in the inaugural World Boxing Super Series final at Olympic Stadium in Moscow on 21 July. The winner will become the first-ever cruiserweight to hold all four titles and will take on the The Ring Magazine title, the inaugural Muhammad Ali Trophy, and a cool $1 million. To do that, Ukraine’s 2012 Olympic champion has once again agreed to fight in hostile territory after defeating Germany’s former world champion Marco Huck in Berlin before picking up a hard-fought WBC title by beating Latvian Mairis Breidis in Riga in Latvia. “I successfully coped with this in the quarterfinal and semi-final,” says Usyk. “Now I’m going to win in Moscow.” The fight was initially to be held in Saudi Arabia, but the Russian Boxing Federation made an aggressive move to outbid the original hosts. Built for the 1980 Olympics, Moscow’s Olympic Stadium can hold 35 000 fans and is expected to be sold out for one of the biggest sporting events of the year.
Tickets: 832 – 10 395 UAH and up to 62 360 UAH for VIP and ringside seats
