I have no room for error. I promise that I do the best I can and will try to please the fans. For me, I don’t care how I win, knockout or decision.”

Alexander Likhter, Akhundov’s coach: “Preparations for this fight with Timur were great. He is ready for 100%. I am sure of his victory. This will be a significant event in the history of Ukrainian professional boxing”.
