The world champion pro-boxing Firuza Sharipova from Kazakhstan will not speak at the Second World Boxing Forum on June 16th. She wrote about it on her Instagram today, reports Prosports.kz, referring to the athlete's press service.
"My fight on 16 June will unfortunately not take place. The reason – the lack of funding. It is a pity that the fight at such a major event and such important title is canceled again. We were promised financial support to sanction the World Champion belts in several versions. We spent money on training, but nothing for nothing.
I am very grateful to my team: The coaching team, manager Sergey Zavileysky, has agreed on a performance at such a significant event – although it did not happen in the end, but a lot of effort was made. In the near future, we will tell all the details, "wrote Firuza Sharipova.
On June 16, Firuz Sharipova in Yekaterinburg was to take revenge on Russian Julia Kutsenko. The Second World Boxing Forum will take place from 13 to 16 June.
