"I'm happy to be boxing in Russia. I had suggestions from other companies to fight in America and England, but I rejected them for a fight in Krasnoyarsk," Besputin said.

"I will take advantage of every opportunity to get a WBC belt, because it gives a lot of opportunities for growth. When I lived in America in the city of Oxnard, I worked out with a lot of Mexicans. I'm very familiar with their culture. That's why I have a special fight, a special belt, a special opponent. I am very happy to support countrymen. This is motivating."
