Athletistic/Boxing. President of the World Boxing Council (WBC) Mauricio Suleiman emphasized that due to certain circumstances it is not yet possible to organize a title fight between Dmitry Bivol and Artur Beterbiev, which would determine the champion of the absolute world of light heavyweights.

Suleiman noted: “We have already explained several times that Bivol must contact us and present his point of view on why he cannot be considered a Russian. We cannot organize fights with the participation of athletes from Russia and Belarus, we do not support athletes.” He is from these two countries. He hasn’t contacted us for several months. It’s simple. If Dmitry feels that he is being unfairly perceived and needs a different status, then he should contact us,” Boxing News quoted Suleiman as saying.
