The famous Kamil Hajiyev decided on an original move.
After a strong fight between Alexander Shlemenko and Magomed Ismailov, there was a small pause in Russian martial arts. No, the tournaments continue as usual, but the high-profile fights can be counted on one hand. No less important, this is due to the absence of Vladimir Mineev, who has been in the NVO zone for several months. However, Vladimir does not completely abandon sports: we will still see him in the ring or in the octagon. And maybe soon enough.
Mineev is preparing a high-profile duel – with Magomed Ismailov! The Bald Predator is at the top of his career, actively winning boxing and earning a lot of money. It is that Magi left an unfinished story with Mineev, whom he could not defeat according to the rules of MMA. Now the famous promoter Kamil Hajiyev wants to organize the third fight between Ismailov and Mineev! Unfortunately, there is no money for it. And Kamil came up with a bold solution.
“We often hear from the audience that it would be great to see this fight. And we listen to the fighter: all the spectators want to see my fight! Do they say they want to, or do they really want to, and in their desire are they willing to take certain, albeit small, steps? The organizer’s experience is the ability not to get recklessly involved in an event that may result in financial failure.
I decided to transfer my experience to a technological level. In the near future, we will launch a platform that will collect viewer deposits for an eight-round boxing match between Magomed Ismailov and Vladimir Mineev.
It was previously reported that Mineev will fight Shtyrkov
Will a trained Mineev fly away from Shtyrkov? Not even a lot of weight will help
We will have 60 days to raise 45 million! If so, in December we’ll have one of the biggest tournaments in history, enlivened with a great press tour around the country. If we don’t raise $45 million, it means this matchup isn’t really that interesting. Then we return the deposits and think of new great challenges!” — wrote Gadzhiev on social networks.
The idea of collecting money for the fight from the audience is, of course, interesting. Crowdfunding is an incredibly popular topic around the world, but it seems that in this case this approach is doomed to fail. To begin with, the fight between Ismailov and Mineev according to the rules of boxing, and not MMA, is not the most exciting sign. However, even a louder fight simply does not have a chance to collect such a large amount of the audience. In our country, it is not customary to pay for this.
And abroad such a move would hardly have been appreciated. Yes, they are willing to buy broadcasts there, but the fight leagues or promoters should find the finances to put on the fight. And it turns out that the viewer arranges a duel with his own money, and someone else will earn money on it; after all, no one canceled advertising and tickets to the tournament. Many may feel that they were simply deceived. But Hajiyev’s creativity cannot but rejoice. Our sport needs a new look.
