Girls announcing box matches will be dressed decently as a sign of respect towards Islam

Girls announcing box matches will be dressed decently as a sign of respect towards Islam 

Promotion company “Box world” that organises most of the box matches in Russia declared that it would not allow young women announcing rounds to wear open clothes anymore.

In the words of the company manager Andrey Ryabinskiy, this is done as a sign of respect towards representatives of different religions and Islam, first of all.

“People of various cultures attend our matches.  There are also Muslim boxers and we respect them. A box match is not a place for girls in a bikini to walk around. It is a formal sporting event of an international level. It is not a strip club,” – said Ryabinskiy.

The girls were dressed appropriately at the tournament on May 22 in Moscow. According to Ryabinsky, ring gils will look this way from now on: “they look beautiful, but decent.” Nikita Mikhalkov, Mikhail Porechenkov and the head of Chechnya republic Ramzan Kadirov were among the match audience.
