Former WBA and IBF cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev spoke about the introduction of video replays in boxing.
“I support the idea of Derek Chisora to introduce a video replay system in boxing. It certainly won’t be redundant. I remember that in the duel with Murat Gassiev, he also actually hit me not in the liver, but in the kidneys and back. But we are professionals, and it remains only to accept such things. And remember how Andre Ward hit Sergey Kovalev in his underpants. But there the referee recorded a knockdown. VAR could help sort it out to some extent, ”he said in an interview with RT.
Earlier, Denis Lebedev commented on the referee scandal in a boxing match between Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk and Briton Daniel Dubois.
