    This is a fight between Matvey Korobov(Rus) and Yordenis Despaigne (Cub), with my rudimentary Russian skills which only allow me to write words and read them, I found this gem on YouTube while searching for amateur exploits of Korobov, hands down one of the best ammy fights I've ever watched.

    As far as I remember the fight wasn't as good as the drama, something happened and Kovalev and his corner got pissed off at Beterbiev.
    When Beterbiev came to shake hands and make up, Kovalev pushed him and his corner too started yelling at Bet.

    Can't seem to find the video though now despite having seen it a month ago or so , @From.Russia have you seen this video and if so can you find it?

    They both battled for a place in a national olympic team. Just before 2008 summer olympics they fought each other 2 times, one unofficial in Kislovodsk, Kovalev said that he beat BTR so bad that his back head was touching his ass, Artur said later it was a blatant lie.

    Second was an official bout in a 1/2 finale of russian boxing competition 2007, Beter won very close fight. Kovalev said he lost because of corrupt system and everyone was against him. The head coach of russian national team back then, said Kovalev won early rounds, but Artur was better in later round. The coach of russian boxing captain, said that Kovalev dominated. At the end of the day BTR became number 1 in russian team and went to Peking olympics and Chicago boxing championship, while Kovalev got tired of rivalry with Korobov and BTR, unfair judges and quit amateur boxing in 2008.
