I told (Aliev a short time later) to quiet down. “You’re not intuition with your head. You’re thinking with your heart. I realize it’s hard, however the best thing to do is return to the evolving room”.

Nieva said he has tallied around 39 cuts during the opposition. “It is substantially more. Head conflicts are not useful for the fighters.
“In beginner boxing the battle is of extremely focused energy since it is just nine minutes and there is high criticalness to score. It is difficult to stay away from head conflicts. It steers clear of expert fighters contending in the Olympics,” he said.
Italy mentor Emanuele Renzini concurred. “The danger of wounds has expanded since headgear was eliminated. You see this in each rivalry. We need to examine this issue with the AIBA specialized council.”
