Team Pirog Have No Issue With Facing N'Dam, Anywhere

By Ruslan Chikov

WBO middleweight champion Dmitry Pirog (20-0) and his promoter, Kyril Pchelnikov, have no issue with facing mandatory challenger Hassan N'Dam (27-0) in any location or venue. Pchelnikov states that recent comments regarding the possibility of unfair judging in N'Dam's backyard of France were taken out of context. In a recent interview on BoxingScene.com, N'Dam's promoter, Sebastian Acaries, expressed his goal of placing Pirog-N'Dam in France. If the offer is right, Pirog is willing to fight anywhere in the world.

"Neither myself, Kyril Pchelnikov or Dmitry Pirog, ever gave an interview regarding our fear of going to France and the possibility of unfair judging. Besides myself, Kyril Pchelnikov and Dmitry Pirog, nobody else can discuss this subject [for us]. According our staff, some comments were taken out of context by journalists and attributed to me. All four of Dmitry Pirog's fights [involving] the WBO world title have had no problems whatsoever with judging, no complaints. We did not have and do not have [any complaints with the judging in our fights]. And thanks to the contrary," Pchelnikov said.

"I suggest that the promoter of N'Dam begin discussions with me - let's negotiate! We never discussed the subject that caused your anger."
