According to the source, Ilich was unhappy with the proposed fee. It is reported that the Serb intends to earn at least $50,000. This is much more than he received for the first fight in Yekaterinburg.
Earlier, manager Lucien Bakos, representing Ilic’s interests, said his client earned exactly $50,000 for defeating Shlemenko in the first fight. It is assumed that Bakos announced this amount on purpose, so that the Serbian could count on major fees in Russia in the future.
