The boxing tournament, which was supposed to take place in Sochi, was moved to Kazan. The show “WBC Boxing Night” will be held at the “Pyramida” entertainment center on August 22.

According to the Russian Boxing Federation, the decision to postpone the event was made due to the deteriorating coronavirus epidemiological situation in the Krasnodar Territory.

The main battle of the tournament will be the meeting of Ruslan Fifer, who has 25 victories, 16 of which by knockout and only one defeat, and Alexei Papin (11 wins, 10 knockouts and 1 defeat).
