Fans criticize Ismailov's words about victory of Ramzan Kadyrov's son

Out of fear, Aslan Bittirov's coaches announced his defeat from Adam Kadyrov at the "Time of Legends" tournament, the fighter, Magomed Ismailov has suggested, refusing to comment on the version of the staged nature of the fight. Ismailov was afraid to express his opinion, fans assert.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that at the above tournament, 13-year-old Adam Kadyrov defeated Aslan Bittirov, a fighter from Kabardino-Balkaria. On April 23, Nazhmudin Berbekov, the head of the Boxing Federation of Kabardino-Balkaria, criticized the decision of the coaches, who, after the fight suspension, threw out a white towel as a sign of defeat. Aslan Bittirov's mother spoke out categorically against a rematch with Adam Kadyrov.

The victories of Kadyrov's sons are often backed up by coaches and tournament organizers who are part of the retinue of the head of Chechnya and do not want to upset him, Oyub Titiev and Ruslan Kutaev, human rights defenders, have suggested. The second (bottle-holder) of the athlete who lost to Kadyrov could have been influenced by the atmosphere at tournaments held in Chechnya, and he decided to throw out the towel in order to avoid possible problems, a Moscow boxing coach has suggested.

The referee should not have stopped the Kadyrov-Bittirov fight, said Magomed Ismailov, a MMA fighter from Dagestan.
