Ibragimov complained about Klitschko

Former world heavyweight champion Sultan Ibragimov criticized the boxing style of the legendary Wladimir Klitschko. The Russian, recalling his fight against our champion, noted that the opponent did not allow him to do anything in the ring, relying on a stubborn fight.

Ibragimov said this in an interview with the Ushatayka YouTube channel. According to the 48-year-old Dagestani, after the confrontation with Klitschko in the famous Madison Square Garden in New York, he was full of strength and energy because the Ukrainian did not allow Sultan to realize them during the fight.

"After the fight with Klitschko, I was sitting in the locker room. Damn, I had so much strength and energy that I didn't have time to realize in the fight. Because this man did nothing and did not give me anything. He is very tall and has a large arm span. He stands at a distance. He threw a punch and stepped back. He spoiled the show and the boxing. I didn't manage to use my strength. I had a problem with my left hand. Klitschko's team knew about the problem, but they didn't know which hand. And he hit me on the arm before the opening round... They have agents. No matter how hard you try to hide everything. I realized that he hit my arm on purpose," Ibragimov said.
