Your right, it's hard to claim Kostya as an Australian boxer. Fair enough he fought out of here as a pro but it was the Russian boxing school that produced him technically and mentally as a top athlete, it would be a hard case to argue that his boxing skill came from Johnny Lewis' training. Kostya probably could of trained with just about any trainer in Australia and got the same results.
