GROZNY, March 4. /TASS/. Chechnya’s head Ramzan Kadyrov has confessed he is so terribly anxious about the outcome of the forthcoming clash between WBA world champion Ruslan Chagayev and Australia’s Lucas Browne he lost much body weight lately — as if he was in training himself. The Chagayev-Browne encounter is due at the Grozny Coliseum sports hall on Saturday, March 5.
"Ruslan Chagayev looks dead calm, while I am beside myself with anxiety. If the fight is not over tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, I fear doctors will have to put me on a drip. Tranquilizers don’t help anymore," Kadyrov told the media in Grozny on Friday.
He described Chagayev as a man of iron who has never lost through his own fault.
"He has never lost due to his own fault — physical, tactical or athletic. When Ruslan goes to fight, he surely looks a man of iron. He is now head and shoulders above his own strength we saw during the previous fight. We all are looking forward to a spectacular ending," Kadyrov said.
He is certain that the WBA’s "regular" title Chagayev holds at the moment should stay in Grozny.
"Fans’ attention around the world is riveted to the encounter. I keep praying to Almighty God the fight should end decently," he added.
Chagahev has 34 wins to his credit (including 21 knockouts). He lost twice (to Ukraine’s Wladimir Klitschko and Russia’s Aleksandr Povetin). One fight ended in a draw. Browne has attained 23 wins (20 knockouts) and never lost.
