Russian Murat Gassiev and German Michael Wallisch will fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Asian heavyweight title on Thursday, at the Dynamo Volleyball Arena, in Moscow, Russia.

Both fighters complied with the weigh-in ceremony on Wednesday and are ready to step into the ring to fight for the regional belt of the oldest boxing organization in the world.

Gassiev, a former cruiserweight world champion, returned last to boxing last year after stepping away in 2018 when he lost to Oleksandr Usyk in the final of the World Boxing Super Series.

He is a 27 years old fighter who was away from the ring for two years. He returned in 2020 to defeat Nuri Seferi and now feels ready to take this Asian belt and continue to climb his way to another world opportunity.

Wallisch is a heavyweight veteran who has fought good opponents like Joe Joyce and Tony Yoka. He comes in with two straight wins and at 35 years of age knows he can’t let this opportunity pass him by.

Gassiev has a record of 27 wins, 1 loss and 20 knockouts, while Wallisch has 22 wins, 4 losses and 15 knockouts.
