Default Does Islam Timurziev have cancer?

I just heard on youtube that he has been diagnosed with cancer of the brain. I wasn't sure what to make of this so i checked on the internet and I found nothing. Interestingly though i have just read that about 6 years ago he had a brain tumor and had to miss some boxing championships. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Did your source indicate that Timurziev has cancer now? Or was the message referring to Timurziev's tumor operation that took place several years ago?

Regarding Timurziev's original brain tumor, which was found and removed in the mid '00s, there was no indication as to whether the growth was cancerous or benign. The only information released to the public was that some kind of growth had to be surgically removed. Who knows if it was a benign tumor, or a cyst, or cancer.

Where did you get this latest information?

The source isn't great, just a youtube poster. He replied today to a question I asked over a year ago about what Islam was doing now. He said he was very sick with cancer of the brain.

Here's the video

Again not a great source which is why I posted this thread to see if any of the Russian posters had any input.

I think that poster is wrong. I'm friendly with a guy from the Caucasus (near Timurziev's region) who knows the boxing scene in that area. I'll ask him right now if Timurziev is okay.

My friend from the Caucasus got back to me, and he says none of his connections have heard that Timurziev is sick. The guy who posted on youtube was probably confused, not realizing that Timurziev's operation happened years ago.
