The reason for the fight at the press conference dedicated to the “Kings of the Ring” fighting tournament was a provocation from an opponent who tried to humiliate Vyacheslav Datsik. This was told by the sparring partner of the Russian athlete Arthur Sargsyan, nicknamed “Bald”.
“That is, a conflict that turned into a fight. Some person unknown to me, they say that he is a fighter, began to ask Datsik questions. And thus he began to humiliate him as a fighter. I began to say that he is not like a fighter, that he is a bag, ”he told REN TV on February 6.
According to Sargsyan, he could not endure such communication both as a friend of Datsik and as a sparring partner.
As the fighter specified, he began to ask questions in response to why the interlocutor humiliates Vyacheslav, and as a result, the verbal skirmish turned into a fight.
“The last thing he said to me was come here. This is “come here” – this is a provocation on his part, ”Sargsyan said.
A massive fight between athletes and bloggers earlier took place at a press conference dedicated to the Kings of the Ring boxing show. Fighter Vyacheslav Datsik, bloggers Artem Tarasov and Artem Fisher, coaches and friends of the show participants, ten people in total.
