"Non-Russians" Bivol and Beterbiev will officially fight on June 1

Today the fight between Artur Beterbiev, WBC, WBO, IBF light heavyweight champion of the world, and Dmitry Bivol has been officially announced. The fight, as previously reported, will take place on June 1 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

It should be noted that Beterbiev and Bivol are the technical representatives of Canada and Kyrgios, and in fact represent Russia. Beterbiev thanked Chechen dictator Ramzan Kadyrov right in the ring after his last victory. Also in his interviews he repeatedly said that he is a Russian. Also Russian is Bivol, who only in the last few fights was presented as a boxer from Kyrgyzstan, who trains in the United States.

Earlier, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman repeatedly said that his organization would not allow Russian boxers as long as there is a war between Ukraine and Russia.
