Klitschkos “steal” Arena’s Alexander Ustinov

They always complained about filthy tricks of shady managers in the international boxing business, now the Klitschkos pulled out some dubious methods themselves. Although they knew that Alexander Ustinov (7-0-0) had a valid management contract with a matchmaker binding him exclusively with Arena Box Promotions, Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko inked the 32-year-old former Muay-Thai Champion for their marketing company "K2 East"..

Vitali Klitschko sparred with Ustinov while preparing for his comeback fight against Jameel McCline. By that time he already knew that the Belarussian was exclusively working with arena. Attorney Rafael Villena y Scheffler: "Basically that means that the Klitschko Management Group consciously mislead Alexander Ustinov to a breach of contract."

The controversion will probably end up before court. When and for whom Ustinov will be able to pursue his professional boxing career is up in the air at the moment.
