Kazakhstan professional boxing champion Firuza Sharipova expressed her dismay at the exclusion of Daniyar Yeleusinov from former Kazakhstan champion Gennady Golovkin's bout against Canadian compatriot Steve Rolls.
"I am shocked by the situation with Daniyar Eleusinov. But honestly, when I started my career, we had everything in a similar way. We wanted to get on Gennady Golovkin's undercard, which was negotiated with promoter Tom Leffler, and he was not against it. But from the manager Gennady Oleg Herman received the answer: "Never (underlined) Firuz will not trade in the same card with Golovkin." It was very rude and of course I was very upset at the time. We wanted Gennady Golovkin at least verbal support. Through mutual acquaintance, they asked him to say a few nice words in the press about me. He did not answer. As a result, I was supported by Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin, who calls and encourages me before any fight.
Golovkin has already reached such a level that even simple words of support would really motivate many and provide additional impetus to his career. But for some reason he does not do that, it's weird for us.
After that, I set myself the goal of surpassing Golovkin's results. Of course, he has strongly promoted Kazakhstan in the world of sports, but I want more. And I will do everything I can to achieve the title of absolute world champion that was not possible for Gennady or for someone from Kazakhstan. In any case, we are proud of the athletic achievements of Gennady Golovkin. It's just not clear why he behaves this way to his compatriots. From my point of view, I can say that I always support young Kazakh boxers and will do so in the future. I want professional boxing in Kazakhstan to develop as much as possible. For this purpose, we have founded a public foundation and opened an advertising agency. And if you look at the boxing match card organized by us, there are always many young Kazakh boxers. We take every opportunity to help my compatriots and compatriots and never refuse. "- Such a long contribution triggered Sharipova in her Instagram.
We add that Daniyar Eleusinov is now in the ring on May 25 at a boxing night in Oxon Hill, Maryland, USA, where world champion Alexander Usyk should debut because of the injured super heavyweight Ukrainian. The fight between Golovkin and Rolls will take place on June 8 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
