Ryabinsky To Step Back, Vadim Kornilov To Head 'World of Boxing'

By Igor Lazorin, tass

Andrei Ryabinsky, the head of the promotional company "World of Boxing,"  will continue to fund boxing, but his day to day functions will now be handled by manager Vadim Kornilov. Ryabinsky announced the move at a news conference.

"In Russia there is no boxing industry, there is no business, because there are no channels that pay for fights," said Ryabinsky. "I have another business in which I earn money, and  I will continue to fund the sport. Boxing - this is more than a hobby, which I will continue to fund, but soon my functions will be handled by Vadim Kornilov."

Ryabinsky launched "World of Boxing" in 2013. The company cooperates with such boxers as Denis Lebedev, Alexander Povetkin, Edward Troyonovsky, Dmitry Bivol and numerous others.

Kornilov is best known for being the manager of Ruslan Provodnikov, Lebedev, Bivol, Viktor Postol and others.
