February 3 at the Bolshoi Ice Palace in Sochi, a boxing evening took place. The main event of this day was the semifinal of the World Super Series, where Murat Gassiev and Unnier Dorticos came together.
In a knockout match, Gassiev defeated Dorticos, by which he combined the world championships in the first heavyweight according to the WBA and IBF versions, and also reached the World Super Series finals, where he will fight with the Ukrainian Alexander Usik. This battle is scheduled for May 11 2018 and will take place in the metropolis of Jeddah - the "economic capital" of Saudi Arabia, located on the Red Sea.
After the fight, at a press conference, Murat again amazed everyone, making a very generous gesture: the athlete gave his champion belt to Unier - as a consolation, since he could not hold back his tears after the defeat.
The victory of Murat Gassiyev was not just a great joy for all boxer fans, but also another reason for the pride of his countrymen.
That is why we offer you today to remember and watch the large-scale Alana project - a video clip Albina и Fati Tsarikayev, which published last year and presented to the public the prominent Ossetians, who achieved great success in various fields: in art, in sports, in science and others.
