WBO junior middleweight champ Zaurbek Baysangurov has been injured during his training camp at the Summit Gym in Big Bear, California and will not be able to defend his title on July 6th in Kiev, Ukraine. “I am very disappointed. My back betrayed me again. Formerly I had to reschedule the fight with Konecny for the same reason. Though I have never been training this hard and am in the best shape ever, the pain does not allow me to go on training and I have to submit the cancelation. But I promise to all of the fans that I will be back very soon,” said Baysangurov.
“It is very bad and unexpected news for us. This show was intended to become the real sensation. We won the purse bids with the considerable amount, prepared a “cool” undercard, plenty of tickets were purchased, the TV rights were sold to 30 countries. But we have to cancel the show and I feel sad about that. It happens in boxing sometimes. I hope Zaur will recover soon and will be able to return to the ring already this year,” said Alexander Krassyuk, Baysangurov’s promoter (K2 Promotions Ukraine).
