Vice-President of the National League of professional Boxing of Ukraine Alina Shaternikova has shared his opinion about how the pandemic coronavirus and quarantine will affect the box.
– Recently in mass media there was information that the Mexican promoters are developing options for implementation in the near future evening of Boxing without an audience with a very limited number of people who will have access to the arena. Sami the boxers, as reported, together with their teams on the eve of the fighting will be quarantined in the training camp and will often be tested for the coronavirus. What do you think about this idea?
– Honestly, I do not support the idea because the very essence of sport is to gather the audience and to give the intensity of emotions. The sport was created for people, for the masses. Conduct sports competitions without spectators, without its Foundation, is still, in some degree, to destroy it. I believe that sport is for spectators, it’s not just content for TV or competition for athletes.
We will remind, earlier Shaternikova said when they will launch professional Boxing.
