K2 East vs. K2 Ukraine

K2 East Promotion

By Alexey Potapov

At a press conference in Kiev, Ukraine, promoter Vadim Bukhkalov, head of “National Box Promotion” informed the media that WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has left K2 East Promotions, which was created in November 2007 through a partnership between the Klitschkos’ К2 Promotions and National Box Promotion. “I always was proud of our cooperation with Vitali Klitschko, and I am grateful to him for it,” said Bukhkalov. But today Vitali no longer with K2 East Promotion. I know why he made his decision, but I can’t talk about it. That should come from Klitschko.”

He added, “I also wish to say that K2 East Promotion CEO Alexander Krassyuk has also left the company, but for me it’s not a problem. All boxers, except for Alexander Ustinov have remained on my team. Nine boxers still have contracts with me. Now for me the most important to find new partners and sponsors. I hope, that it will occur very soon. If I find a strong sponsor, the company will change its name.” also spoke to Krassyuk, who announced that he is going with Klitschko. “Vitali Klitschko has created new promotional company K2 Ukraine,” he stated. “Now I’m CEO of K2 Ukraine. Between Klitschko and Bukhkalov there wasn’t any conflict, but there were disagreements about how professional boxing in the Ukraine should develop. Vitali suggested Bukhkalov cash out his part of the company, but he refused. Vitali then made a decision to leave K2 East Promotions and to create K2 Ukraine. Together with us are our partners who worked with us in K2 East Promotions. Now I’m negotiating with boxers from K2 East Promotions so they can work with us. Nobody can forbid them. A press conference about the creation K2 Ukraine will come soon and the first boxing show of the new company will be in a few months.”
