Kadyrov pays 100,000 roubles to his son's opponent who lost the fight

The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, organized another children's fight in Grozny, having paid 100,000 roubles to an 11-year-old kickboxer from Kabardino-Balkaria for a loss in a fight with his son. Users of social networks indicated the difference in opponents' weight categories, which was in favour of Kadyrov's son.

A report on the fight of his 10-year-old son with the above kickboxer from Nalchik was posted by Ramzan Kadyrov today in his page in the "VKontakte" along with a video record of the match. According to Kadyrov, his son's performance was "a real decoration and spectacular point of the International Kickboxing Tournament in Grozny."

Ramzan Kadyrov praised his son for "excellent physical training and technique," treating his opponent as a "real warrior" and an "exceptionally talented fighter." Both young fighters received cups after the fight; and the junior rival of Kadyrov's son also received 100,000 roubles from the Akhmat-Hadji Kadyrov Foundation, says the above report in the "VKontakte" social network.

The users of the social network, who watched the video of the fight, have noted that Kadyrov Jr. differed from his opponent with a stronger body-build.

"If I'm not mistaken, these boys have different weight categories: it was seen with the naked eye that [the son of the head of Chechnya] is heavier than the rival," one of the users wrote in a comment to the video. "That's why he has won," Liana Kamilova concluded in her response.
