Athletistic/Boxing. Swedish boxer Otto Wallin decided not to shake hands with Russian athlete Murat Gassiev during the weigh-in ceremony before the next fight, scheduled for September 30 in Turkey.

“I’m not here to make friends with him, but to win. This is boxing, not a friendly evening. I respect Murat as a boxer. I believe I have to make wise decisions. His strengths and mine are known. “I will teach him a lesson and wait for the opponent to make a mistake,” Wallin commented in an interview with the Russian Boxing Federation.

Murat Gassiev fought a total of 32 fights, in which he won 30 victories (23 by knockout) and suffered one defeat. Another fight with his participation was declared invalid. Wallin has 25 victories (14 by KO) and one defeat.
