He also emphasized that he does not plan to return to the post of head of the FBU, the head of the Federation will be elected in the near future.

“I by my work at the international level will not be able and do not see possible to take the post of President of the Boxing Federation of Ukraine, there are quite a few worthy representatives of the boxing family, who have such ambitions and competence. About the official date of the election will be announced later,” he wrote.
