    Does not surprise me.

    He could come back later, though. He's only 28. If he took four years off, felt really healthy at the end of it, he could come back at 32.

    If you had told him this in gym, you had tasted a kick and headbutt and something more.

    To be fair, he was legit CW champ and so on, he is young, had injury and very long rehab period.

    His does have pros and cons, one from cons is that his matchmaker is well known cos feeding bums as opponents.
    He migh turn him into Wilder II or even 10X worse.

    Check the original source. It is only rumoured, these words are not coming from Gassiev.

    Gassiev is gay. Why are you so defensive about this?

    I don't need to read anything.
    Most likely Murat had picked best available variants for his last fights.
    Enough high number his fans does knows what kind of matchmaker and matchmaking advisor his prom is using.

    Murat ofc will not fear even to take Usyk II or AJ fight.

    He had injury and very long rehab period cos this, then some promotional problems and had sticked with one prom after this.
    No offense and his prom is nice guy, only this matchmaking:D:D:D.

    You are defensive.
    I never had interest about boxer's sexual interests, despite had hanged around boxers and had boxed etc.
    Simply such questions and talks in some gyms and areas might bring you in ICU or morgue.
    U might get accident in dressing room, on the street or in sparring session.

    I don't care...I am a fan of the guy, and if someone is gay, they are gay. Their business.

    That being said, do you have knowledge of this? Was this stated somewhere? Just curious. It could probably mean something for gay people to have such a tough dude out there representing them.

    Sadly, it makes sense though. This last injury, just when he was going to get a respectable journeyman in there that would have been a meaningful step, has to be devastating.

    So sad. I hope he takes the time he needs and gives it another try, be it six months or five years. But I most of all just hope he does what is best for his health.

    I don't know and never had interest about this.
    I know some areas and gyms where payment for accusation someone to be gay is very high.
    This isn't like accused guy should immediately beat you up.
    This in some places just means that you will be blessed by God if you still will be alive after some 3 years.

    There also are some not easy to find in google phrases, might initially mean " nothing special " and initially looking innocent but these might be worse than to accuse someone to be gay. Cos only payment for these might be life.

    Sex is guy's business and to talk about this in rough gym's dressing room etc might lead to delayed very brutal payment.

    It would be awful if he packed it in.

    Why not just take Hrgovic, or the biggest fight he can get instead? No warm ups, no nothing, just go in there and try to blast out the best guy he can instead of packing it in.

    He's currently injured. Broken arm or something.

    But what I don't get for guys like him that are oft injured, is why not just give up the intense boxing training, and concentrate on road-work. Train to run a marathon. He knows how to fight. Just build up the lungs.

    Whoa. Major culture difference here man. Here in America most people dont give a flying **** if they think you're gay.

    Yeah, of course, no until he's right. But **** packing it in when you've so little miles on you.
