In the US, Russian boxer Sergey Kovalev is accused of beating a woman. He faces up to four years in prison. This is reported by TMZ.
The incident occurred in one of the hotels in June 2018, after a girl the boxer liked refused him. After that, Kovalev and his friend went to her hotel room, where he struck her in the head multiple times. The victim was diagnosed with a nose fracture, concussion, and displacement of the cervical disc. The boxer was detained by police shortly after the incident. The next court hearing on his case is to be held in March of this year.
Sergey Kovalev has defended three WBA, IBF, and WBO world titles. In August, Kovalev lost in a fight with Colombian Eleder Alvarez. February 2, a rematch should be held. According to Kovalev's promoter, the criminal prosecution of the Russian will not interfere with the fight.
Artur Tsybikov, who refers to himself as Deputy Supreme Shaman of Russia, is trying to justify the Zhen Tengery Yaba ritual, which caused public outrage. He noted that the head of Chechnya does the same every year, burning five camels.
After the Colonel Zakharchenko scandal, Andrey Kurnosenko and some of his colleagues were told that they were not fit for the job. However, the head of the Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department retained his post.
