Alexander Zakhozhy said that he always receives offers to fight with representatives of aggressor countries.

Alexander Zakhozhy refused to fight the Russians. The Ukrainian representative of the heavyweight division said that the last time he was offered a fight with a representative of the aggressor country was on the undercard of the fight between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou.

However, the undefeated Ukrainian boxer said that he did not want to share the ring with representatives of a terrorist state.

“I had good offers. But the last two were for fighting the Russians, so I turned them down immediately. I don’t even want to share the same ring with them.

There was an opportunity to fight today in Saudi Arabia. And they offered to fight in December with another Russian, but I told that to anyone, but not to the Russians. Kuzmin was offered for December. Second? Arslanbek Makhmudov.

I dismissed these fights because they are not relevant today. And in general,” said Zahozhy in a comment on the YouTube channel TYK MASON.

The Ukrainian boxer also added that he was offered a fee of 400 thousand dollars for the fight with Makhmudov on the Fury-Ngannou undercard, but he refused.

We remind you that earlier it became known that Usik went to Saudi Arabia for the Fury-Ngannou fight.
