Russian boxer Nikolay Valuev has commented on the refusal of the Ukrainian boxers from participating in the world championship in Ekaterinburg (Russia). The Russian stated that the voluntary visit of the Ukrainians could put an end to their career.
According to Valuev, the Federation of Boxing of Ukraine is subject to political process, which the Russians called a grotesque.
The determining factor will be what will decide whether Ukrainian boxers to go to Russia. The main thing – not the money and the desire, and the question of what would happen to them. Voluntary trip to Russia could put an end to the career of the Ukrainian boxer.
In recent years Ukraine mocked so often that it ceased to surprise someone. Suffice it to recall what they did with the Russian language. FBU can’t think about the athletes, because there everything is subordinated to the grotesque to the political process,
– said Valuev RT.
The Boxing Federation of Ukraine will not send an official delegation to the world championship in Yekaterinburg. However, boxers can go to the competition at their own expense.
