Father of knockout participant of children's fights is happy with tournament

Zamrat Shevkhuzhev, the father of a 10-year-old fighter from Sochi, says that his son feels well after the fighting tournament in Grozny.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on October 4 during the tournament in mixed martial arts (MMA) Grand Prix Akhmat-2016 in Grozny demonstrative children's fights were organized. Three Ramzan Kadyrov's sons, aged ten, nine, and eight years, were among the winners. As a result of a punch, a 10-year-old boy from Sochi partially lost consciousness.

"My wife and children were Kadyrov's guests; they talked to his children; and I'm pleased with the organization of the reception," said Shevkhuzhev.

He confirmed that children fought at the tournament without any protective equipment, but could not explain why it happened, the "Sports.ru" reports.

Lat us remind you that Khamzat Khirakhmatov, the Children's Ombudsman in Chechnya, saw no violations of the law during the children's fights.

As stated by Asker Sokht, the deputy chairman of the NGO named "Adyge-Khase" of the Krasnodar Territory, his organization demanded to check the legality of children's participation in the MMA fights.
