Former Heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko believes that Russian competitors shouldn’t be allowed to participate in global sporting events.

Klitschko has been very outspoken about the Russian invasion of the Ukraine and had even taken arm against the Russians to defend his home country. Wladimir Klitschko and his brother Vitali, had both been on the front lines, putting their lives on the line to protect the Ukraine and the citizens of the invasion.

Klitschko has been very outspoken and has pleaded for help from countries all over the world. He had even asked other countries to help in the effort by sending weapons for their citizens to defend themselves with. Klitschko is using his voice for good in his home country and is taking it a step further by calling for Russian athletes to not be able to compete in their sports.

Wladimir Klitschko was on Fox Nation when he urged organizations to not allow Russian athletes to compete

“The IOC should ban the Russian team now. The war is going now, they cannot participate at the next Olympic games, they cannot participate at any athletic events because this war is represented by Russia,” he told “Piers Morgan Uncensored” on Fox Nation. “Actions speak louder than words. Isolation, and this isolation speaks louder than any word or any line because isolation is painful.”  (Transcribed by Bloody Elbow)

The Olympic committee had banned Russia from the sports, but allow the Russian competitors to compete as a neutral athlete. Klitschko believes that this penalty was not hard enough, and there needs to be more impactful on the Russians.

“It’s going to be painful for athletes, for the economy, it’s going to be painful for anyone and everybody involved with Russia,” Klitschko said.

What do you think of Klitschko’s stance on the Russian athletes? Should they be able to compete in global sporting events?

Undefeated professional boxer, Callum Walsh, who plys his trade under the tutelage of Freddie Roach at Wildcard Boxing in California, has detailed some bizarre and unusual drills and training methods he has experienced whilst training alongside former interim UFC lightweight champion, Tony Ferguson.

Walsh, a native of Cork, who boasts an experienced amateur career, returns to the boxing ring atop a Hollywood Fight Nights card broadcast on UFC Fight Pass, and has trained extensively with the aforenoted, Tony Ferguson during the latter’s tenure with Wildcard Boxing.

The former interim UFC gold holder returned to the Octagon at UFC 274 on Saturday opposite Michael Chandler, dropping an early second round front kick knockout defeat in a devastating stoppage loss

The defeat spelt Tony Ferguson’s fourth on the trot, following prior one-sided losses against the trio of Beneil Dariush, Charles Oliveira, and Justin Gaethje

For Walsh, the 21-year-old, who began boxing as an amateur at age 11 en route to a slew of national titles and a European championship win, detailed how Ferguson would often call him up late at night and ask him to go on lengthy runs and training sessions.

“I trained with Tony (Ferguson) a lot,” Callum Walsh told assembled media at UFC 274. “Me and Tony run together, I wrestled with Tony, we’ve done a lot stuff together, me and Tony. It’s crazy, training with Tony, I never before in my life, and I actually wrestled with Tony the first time. Crazy, unbelievably crazy experience.”

“Me and Tony, when we go running, he brings all these drills into it, like American football drills, and this kind of stuff,” Callum Walsh said. “And any time I did go running with Tony, it was like the middle of the night. Tony shows up to my house at like 12 o’clock at night, and we just go running. It’s a lot of unusual training but it’s good, I like it, it’s fun. It makes things fun, and I enjoy it.” 

Walsh explained how while he would be catching his breath after a lengthy session, Ferguson would often only be warming up – claiming that they would train for upwards of three hours into the small hours of the night.
“There was one night actually he (Tony Ferguson) texted me, I think it was like 11:30, 12 at night, he was just like, ‘Let’s go,” Callum Walsh said. “He just texted me, ‘Let’s go.’ I was like, ‘Alright, let’s go.” I think we trained for like three hours, three or four hours.” (Transcribed by Cageside Press)

Canelo Alvarez Suffers Decision Loss To Dmitry Bivol In Upset Title Defeat – Highlights

Canelo Alvarez

Undisputed super middleweight champion, Canelo Alvarez failed in his attempt to land the WBA super light heavyweight championship in a division leap last night against champion, Dmitry Bivol – suffering a unanimous decision loss over the course of 12 rounds in the pair’s Las Vegas, Nevada headliner. 

Suffering just the second professional loss of his career following a prior judging defeat to former world champion, Floyd Mayweather back in September 2013, Canelo Alvarez had entered his light heavyweight division return off the back of a successful eleventh round finish over Jacob Plant back in November of last year – adding the IBF super middleweight title to his stacked and decorated mantle.

Failing to ever really mount any significant offense against the undefeated Russian, Bivol – Canelo landed a career-low number of strikes over the course of 12 total rounds, forced to fight from the outside as Bivol countered and defended expertly. Landing a successful title retention, Bivol landed a unanimous judging win on all three judge’s scorecards, who inked 115-113 on their official papers.

Managing to roll and stick up a persistent guard throughout the 12 round main event despite Canelo’s best efforts, Bivol admitted that he had felt the power coming from the Jalisco pound-for-pound king, but pointed to visible damage to his shoulder and arm – rather than his head.

“I felt his power,” Dmitry Bivol said post-fight. “As you can see from my arm, he (Canelo Alvarez) beat my arm up but not my head. It’s better. He had a good speed and power. Maybe his mistake was he threw only hard punches. After hard punches, he relaxed and (was) tired. I was feeling great. This was the biggest fight of my career and I enjoyed this fight. When the people booed me, it gave me more energy.”

Last night’s ‘Sin City’ defeat for Canelo snapped a whopping 16-fight winning streak for the Mexican puncher, who had previously made the light heavyweight limit back in November 2019 to land the WBO light heavyweight crown with a eleventh round knockout success against Bivol’s compatriot, Sergey Kovalev.
