“I just want to fight – I need big fights,” said Gassiev. “I haven't boxed for a year. I am only 25 years old so I have time but I want to be in big fights.
“The most important thing for me is to be in shape and fit. I feel good up at Heavyweight in the gym, I don't feel heavy, so I am excited to settle into the weight.
“I sparred with Heavyweights all through my time at Cruiserweight and it was good for me, but sparring is different. I think that the time is right to move up though and I'm very motivated.”
 Gassiev's debut will be part of Maurice Hooker vs Jose Ramirez WBO  WBC Super Lightweight Unification fight on Saturday July 27 at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas, live on DAZN in the US and on Sky Sports in the UK.
