Gassiev could very well KO most of the top 10 HW's, apart from the top 3 I cant see anyone not getting caught by him

He'd be a great addition to HW. Imagine Gassiev/Kownacki or Gassiev/Miller. These CW's can move up and really making an impact at HW. Michael Hunter is doing really, really well at HW.
You had to pick the 2 people that are KO's waiting to happen lol, Miller and Kownacki are terrible

Shows how lackluster the division is since they're both top HW's atm. These CWs would really liven up the division.

Apart from the top 3 the division is actually terrible lol, you got an out of shape Kownacki just walking through people but couldnt wall through Charles Martin who AJ stopped in 2, I think Gassiev could get to about Dillain Whyte's level, Usyk could compete with the top 3

Gassiev could well be the next Frazier:

Short reach, serious power, bulldog mentalilty, great chin....

But then again, no.
Frazier was also a brilliant inside fighter. Gassiev is much more basic & crude. (trained by Abel Sanchez, so no surprise there.) He doesn't have Frazier's head movement, nor that ability to drive forward safely. He gets hit far too often, and just relies on his power & toughness to get it done.

That worked against most of the Cruisers, but top ten HW? I just don't see it.

The bottom is quite weak though, Breazeale, Kownacki, Parker, Andy Ruiz, Ortiz

Gassiev could beat these guys if he fights abit more aggressive

Who knows? But I don't see Gassiev giving Ortiz or Breazeale any trouble at all. He'd have great trouble getting past both of their jabs, and they'd both probably destroy him.

Parker & Kownacki suck, so no problem there.
Fat Andy would definitely hold his own due to that hand speed. That one would probably be a great fight.

I can sort of see Ortiz, but you have to be kidding me with Breazeale. Fucking Mansour and Ugonoh had no issue getting to Breazeale. I just don't see Gassiev having any trouble with someone on that level. Plus, Parker is exponentially better than Breazeale.

Ortiz is a bit of a tough one because he's a good counter-puncher. Their styles mesh well with Gassiev's pressure. He'll come to Ortiz, so Ortiz won't have to find him.

Have you lost your marbles, Gassiev would absolutely wipe the floor with Breazeale! That's not even a contest, Breazeale is garbage. and He'd at least give Ortiz a very tough fight.

but you have to be kidding me with Breazeale. Fucking Mansour and Ugonoh had no issue getting to Breazeale. I just don't see Gassiev having any trouble with someone on that level.
exactly

Ortiz is a hard fight but realistically anyone could beat Ortiz in the late rounds now hes getting old and LOL I like Breazeale but Gassiev would rip that guy apart, Breazeale doesnt even have a jab

Breazeale's only problem is that he can be an incredibly slow starter.

For the rest, just watch his fight with Ugonoh. - And Ugonoh is a monster.

Yeah thing is Ugonoh gassed in like 3 rounds, Ugonoh has way too much muscle he was dangerous early but Breazeale weathered the storm, I like Breazeale but Gassiev has shown he can go 12 with no problem
