Former world champion Kostya Tszyu said that he was not considering the possibility of resuming his career, even in order to hold an exhibition fight for a lot of money.
“They talked to me on this topic, but without specifics. But I said that if you even offer me 10-20 million dollars, I will refuse. Therefore, there is no point in offering. I will repeat once again, my word has a meaning for me personally. Many years ago I promised my mom not to perform.
In this regard, I perfectly understand Khabib. Although he is still in general a young man, and, perhaps, has not yet fully realized himself. Maybe he will be able to persuade his mother, but I will not persuade mine. And why? You see, I was a very expensive boxer, but money was never my priority. Number one is the principles of life. And second, I gave my word that needs to be kept, “Tszyu said in an interview with a TASS correspondent.
