“I promised that we will get justice against the Sled Povetkin. So: a few months ago, we have made excuses in all organizations except the WBC, now WBC has sent us a letter today that Povetkin removed a lifetime ban, starting on December 6, he can officially carry out fights for WBC, and from January will be returned in the official ranking!!!” – wrote Rabinsky.
“Melidoniou in fact, he’s found not guilty, according to the recognized ostarine, ostarine was not taken going (ingested with the food additive) This is the first time in the history of Boxing, when a boxer is chosen from such problems.
