WORLD RANKED CONTENDER SHOT MULTIPLE TIMES
San Francisco, CA – WBC youth super-middleweight (168 lbs.) champion Khetag Kozayev was killed in 2010 in the capital of the Republic of North Ossetia in Russia’s volatile North Caucasus Region.
GUNMAN “TARGETED” BOXER ONLY
This wasn’t a robbery gone awry as the Republican Interior Ministry tried to imply when first reported that Kozayev was killed in a “robbery” at the Mirage nightclub in Vladikavkaz on a Saturday night in June 2010. The unbeaten boxer, just 19 years old and less than two years after turning professional, a guy some were calling a “sure thing.” was dead lying on the floor of a disco.
SUSPECT IDENTIFIED AND THEN….POOF!
“The suspect has been identified. He is likely to be detained during the day,” a spokesman for the ministry said. That was the last “press release” from the Russians on the matter. The suspect was never unveiled or identified to the foreign media. I’ve checked Russian news services and nada!
TOMORROW: “SOLVED” MOB KILLING OF SERGEI KOBOZEV
When Sergei Kobozev vanished like Jimmy Hoffa sans any clues whatsoever, he was 22-1, 17 whacks and the USBA cruiserweight (200 lb.) champion, we all presumed the Russian Mob had did it. Tomorrow at RingTalk.com we bring you some closure on this matter.
