Default Alexander Ustinov vs Jason Gavern

12 rounds in Ukraine on April 26.
When is Ustinov going to fight anyone above C level?
Gavern is a step up from Ustinov's recent opposition. He hasn't fought anyone half decent since Monte Barrett in 2009, Ustinov fought shocking opposition in 2010 and 2011, but a 35 year old, 26-0 fighter should really be fighting better opposition than Gavern.

I can see Gavern taking this if he has a decent workrate. Ustinov is fat and slow. I'm not quite sure what K2 are doing with Ustinov, do you think he will ever get a title shot?

Gavern got KO'd last time by Wach

he'll probably KO Gavern in the late rounds, once he tires out

Ustinov by late stoppage. How about Ustinov vs Wach? Or Ustinov vs Fury?

Ustinov will likely win by KO.

He's one of a number of aging heavyweights who need to step up and fight another ranked contender.

I would imagine that his backers would not be in a hurry to have footage of him against Gavern spread around too much.

he's nothing special to be honest, being a former kickboxer he has a style similar to Vitali, so you can at best call him a poor man's Klitschko

he's very slow, and has really poor defense, against Gavern he took some powerful shots, but on the up-side, he's got a very good chin

His style is actually more Valuev than Vitali.

Just a lumbering ****wit. He doesn't show any of his kickboxing background in his boxing style, other than maybe an awkward stance (although that could just be called slouching/bad posture and lack of defense)

Ustinov is only a big fat & totally unskilled "Grade C" himself... if he faces any "Grade B" guys he loses.

Without height, he'd be "Grade D", seriously his nonexistent skills are crapola.

Examples of "Grade B" guys who easily beat Ustinov:

Povetkin
Pulev
Haye
Adamek
Helenius
Mitchell
Arreola
G$ora
Boytsov
Johnson
Jennings
Perez
Solis
