Murat Gassiev vs Jordan Shimmell Fight Preview

Cruiserweights Murat Gassiev and Jordan Shimmell will meet in a world title elimination fight in the main event of a Premier Boxing Champions card May 17 (Fox Sports 1/Fox Deportes, 9 p.m. ET) at Black Bear Casino Resort in Carlton, Minnesota, PBC announced Friday.

Gassiev (22-0, 16 KOs), 22, of Russia, and Shimmell (20-1, 16 KOs), 27, of Hudsonville, Michigan, will meet for the right to become the mandatory challenger for the 200-pound world title held by Argentina's Victor Emilio Ramirez, who is scheduled for a title unification bout against Denis Lebedev on May 21 in Moscow.

The winner of Lebedev-Ramirez will eventually have to face the Gassiev-Shimmell winner.

"I have seen Jordan Shimmell in the ring, and I feel like this is a good fight for me," Gassiev said. "I'm looking forward to getting back in the ring after the mistake I made last fight. I'm going to be real sharp on May 17, and I will not disappoint."

In his last fight Dec. 18, Gassiev and Isiah Thomas fought to a third-round no contest. The fight was short-circuited when Gassiev accidentally hit Thomas after the bell ended the round and he was unable to continue.

Shimmell's only loss came by lopsided 10-round unanimous decision against Thomas in July. He bounced back with a win in February.

"I'm excited to get back in the ring and fight in another televised bout," he said. "I know I'm in there with a tough, strong opponent, but with my skills and ability, it shouldn't be a problem. As long as I fight smart and do the things I've been training to do, I will come out with the win."

In other televised bouts, Miami's John Wesley Nofire (19-0, 15 KOs), 29, and Joey Abell (31-9, 29 KOs), 34, of Champlin, Minnesota, will meet in an eight-round heavyweight fight. Javontae Starks (13-1, 7 KOs), 27, of Minneapolis, will face Yordenis Ugas (15-3, 7 KOs), 28, a 2008 Cuban Olympic bronze medalist based in Miami, in an eight-round junior middleweight bout.
