Tyson and Tszyu together laid the first stone on the site of the construction of the sports complex. At the opening, the boxer said that he “eagerly awaits” when the construction is over and classes in the sections begin.

It is a great pleasure and honor for me to attend today’s event in Korkino and participate in the start of the construction of a new sports complex. It will be a grandiose object.
