    Don't want to spread any false info but I was watching something where they said Bivol might have his pay withheld due to the war in Ukraine.
    If that's true that's just foul.

    Apparently true. He falls under the "Multi-millionaire Russian Citizens" being sanctioned by the US government. It's not so easy to collect $5 million in the U.S. and go back to Russia these days.

    "It hasn't arrived yet," he told the Tass agency in Russia.

    Bivol, a Kyrgyzstan-born Russian who trains in California but lives in St. Petersburg, was not permitted to carry his national flag into the T-Mobile Arena, or sing the Russian national anthem,

    Russian sportspeople have been slapped with a variety of sanctions in light of Russian's ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

    have taken similar steps.

    Tass asked Bivol in Russian whether it is "technically difficult" to "get a fee for this fight in light of the current situation."

    "I think it's very difficult," said Bivol, before adding that the fee for the fight hadn't yet arrived.

    "We will still think about how to do it. We didn't think ahead because the situation is changing rapidly."

    Bivol said he told his manager Vadim Kornilov, who was rarely far from his side throughout the fight week in Las Vegas: "This will be your headache."

    He is not even russian for starters.

    And even if he was, what individual fighter/citizen have to do with goverment and their actions ? How can you punish someone who don't have control over something ? So you gonna punish somebody just because they live there ? Legit questions.

    "Disgusting" is not enough to describe it if true.

    This really ticks me off. The man worked hard and trained his @ss off in his biggest fight and pulled off the biggest win. He was disrespected before the fight and now he's being disrespected AFTER the fight. Bivol can't seem to catch a break.

    PAY the man already.

    It sucks, but there’s loop holes around these situations. Bivol’s a smart guy with a good team behind him, I’m sure he’ll get his money

    Yet the US government can send Russia millions every day to buy their oil!

    ... and send weapons to arm Nazi battalions!
