Datsik refused to admit defeat. Hit the referee and threw him over the ropes



Red Tarzan was sure of victory. He should have learned the rules.

On September 24, within the walls of the Moscow sports complex “CSKA Arena” a duel will be held according to the rules of boxing with the participation of two odious representatives of Russian martial arts. Vyacheslav Datsik will face off against Alexander Emelianenko, the fight should put an end to their protracted dispute.

Both fighters have been noted for scandalous antics both in the octagon and outside it more than once – one can list their dubious merits for a long time. Each of the rivals has been in prison, Datsik’s assets also include treatment in a psychiatric clinic and an escape from its walls. Among other things, in the biography of Red Tarzan there is a strange fight with a slender music lover, where a professional MMA fighter managed to lose by a judicial decision.

Vyacheslav did not admit defeat and threw the referee over the ropes.

“Meloman” Datsik

In November 2002, within the framework of the Fight Club project, representatives of Russian rock and Russian pop music sorted out relations in the ring. The groups “Leningrad” and “Otpetye swindlers” masterfully heated up the confrontation, using elements from thrash talk and rap battles, although both of these cultures did not really exist in the country at that time.

Each musical group exhibited three participants. “Scammers” were going to make do with the forces of vocalists, the rockers threw a drummer, bass player and saxophonist into battle. The leader of the group, Sergei Shnurov, referred to a broken arm, and therefore inspired colleagues from outside the ring. Fans could help the creative boxers in the overall standings – two fights were reserved for volunteers from the audience.

By the next battle, at which music fans were supposed to perform, Leningrad was confidently leading with a score of 3: 1. Fans of pop music could still improve the situation, especially since a very slender young man volunteered to defend the honor of the rockers. A surprisingly stately “music lover” came out against him, in which few people could then recognize the young Vyacheslav Datsik.

“I can’t beat”

Red-haired Tarzan already had several official fights in mixed martial arts, managed to knock out the future UFC star Andrei Orlovsky. But in the hall of the St. Petersburg club for most of the guests it was just a red-haired guy from the hall. A girl with a microphone approached the strong defender of pop music and asked if he was ready to “kick his ass” and “demolish the skull” of the enemy. The redhead responded with a growl and then ripped his T-shirt in the ring.

The organizers did not know that they were playing with fire, letting Datsik into the same ring with an amateur. But Vyacheslav was frankly having fun, demonstratively putting his head up and easily dodging the fussy attacks of the enemy. Something, of course, reached Vyacheslav’s body, but the blows for him were like pellets for an elephant. At the end of the round, he even knocked the opponent down, but everything went without serious consequences.

The girl with the microphone again tried to talk to the red-haired boxer, but he said that he was tired and went to sit in the corner. However, it was not easy to get rid of the journalist, she nevertheless pulled out a promise from Datsik to break the score that was unsuccessful for the “Inveterate Scammers”.

“I don’t know how to beat, I put on gloves for the first time,” the interlocutor justified himself.

The play continued in the second round. To the cries from the audience “Kill him!”, addressed to no one knows who, Datsik again avoided the battle, although once he still waved through the air. The opponent got a taste of impunity and even dropped Vyacheslav with a throw, which clearly did not fit into the rules of boxing.

The red-haired boxer stood up, and it might have seemed that a blow of retribution was about to follow. However, the same comedy continued – the defender of popular music fooled around and pretended to overcome the consequences of a knockdown. The referee did not understand the humor or may have received a signal from the organizers that it is time to stop the dangerous undertaking. The fight was stopped, Datsik was awarded a defeat. Red Tarzan failed to save Russian pop music.

“Things didn’t go according to plan”

The most interesting thing happened after the official end of the fight. Red-haired Tarzan approached the judge and asked about something. He probably didn’t like the answer – he immediately hit the referee, demonstrating that he hadn’t put on gloves for the first time. A recent rival of Datsik, who probably believed in his invincibility, came forward to defend the arbitrator – fortunately, the victim threw him out of harm’s way in time.

Passions did not subside on this – a crazy continuation followed from the side of the referee. Having missed the blow, he did not fall apart, but kindly registered Datsik in the face in response. Red-haired Tarzan picked up the enemy and dragged him through the entire ring to the ropes, throwing a new opponent into the auditorium.

The security service immediately appeared in the ring, the hall was also restless. All this action frankly looked like a Russified version of wrestling fashionable overseas, although the excited voices of the guards who got into the frame made it possible to some extent doubt that some kind of scenario was being played out here.

The unlucky boxer again fell into the hands of a girl with a microphone, but could not answer why he did not beat before the end of the fight. When asked why the referee hit, the tinny fighter retorted with an absurd one:

Why did he stop the fight ahead of time?

When the girl tried to reason with the interlocutor, that he was like a real fighter. should have foreseen all this, Datsik replied:

“They didn’t tell me anything about the rules.

This production was or not, probably, one could find out from a direct participant in the events years later. Datsik, indeed, in one of the interviews, recalled visiting the battle of musicians, although he could not determine the exact year. Judging by the words of the fighter, he was indifferent to music and entering the ring was only a means, not an end.

We wanted to ruin the show. There, the audience arranged fights, and then, when they saw what was happening in the hall, they began to beacon to the judge, they say, slow down, then kipish. The gang is up to something. What were we up to then? Initially, there was a project – ###### (slap) all the casinos and take out the cashier. For this, a mass kipish was needed. And it ended…###### (slapped) the director of the Leningrad group and a couple of clowns. All the casinos fled, and the situation did not go according to plan,” Datsik said in an interview with Sport24.

    Makhachev’s fight in the UFC fell through due to doping allegations. But Islam proved it right




    Doctors advised the Russian fighter to take meldonium. And justice still prevailed.

    The career of the Russian fighter Islam Makhachev has been going uphill in recent years. For the last ten fights, the Dagestan athlete has not known defeat in the UFC octagon, which is why he got a well-deserved chance to fight for the vacant lightweight champion belt with Brazilian Charles Oliveira.

    But this fantastic series might not have happened if the athlete had not managed to defend his good name before the American anti-doping agency, which sought his removal from fights in the strongest MMA promotion on the planet.

    But an important fight is still canceled!

    Questionable Suspension at a Critical Moment

    Islam Makhachev on October 22 has a real chance to become the next UFC champion from Russia. To do this, our fighter needs to sort out the “cage” with the dangerous Brazilian Charles Oliveira, who, due to his stupidity, left the lightweight title vacant a few months ago.

    Makhachev’s path to the championship fight was long and thorny. Only the tenth fight won in a row convinced the promotion management to give the Russian a chance to fight for the belt. But it could have ended earlier. Islam could well lose its place in the organization’s roster due to the hasty actions of the US Anti-Doping Agency.

    In 2015, Islam suffered his first and only defeat in his career. The duel against the Brazilian Adriano Martins slowed down the progress of the Dagestan fighter to the top of the lightweight rating for a long time. Makhachev did not fight after this loss for six months.

    His return was planned for April 2016, the American Drew Drober was to become Islam’s rival. The fight was important for Makhachev, because after the loss he could end his performances in the UFC altogether. But shortly before the fight, a press release appeared on the official website of the promotion, stating that the Russian would not be able to take part in the tournament due to the discovery of traces of meldonium in his body. At that time, this drug had been on the banned list for four months.

    The UFC was notified today that Islam Makhachev has been informed by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) of a potential anti-doping policy violation involving meldonium, a prohibited substance, as a result of recent out-of-competition sample collection. In accordance with UFC anti-doping policy, Makhachev has been suspended from his scheduled fight against Drew Dober on Saturday’s card in Tampa, Florida, the UFC said in a statement.

    “It’s just ascorbic for the heart”

    Serious accusations of doping, as well as a long break in his career (and even after losing by knockout) significantly worsened Makhachev’s position. The Russian had to urgently defend his good name.

    – I had health problems. In 2014, he had to go to the World Combat Sambo Championship in Japan. A week before departure, I was confronted with the fact that there was a problem with the heart. I started to learn about her, and I came across a good doctor. I consulted with him, and he suggested that I perform a small heart operation to eliminate the arrhythmia. When problems with meldonium started, I had to ask my relatives to scan the entire medical history, a whole bunch of documents, and send them to the USA, ”Makhachev described the situation with the disqualification.

    At the same time, the athlete did not deny the periodic use of meldonium at a time when it was still allowed. He did this to maintain the normal functioning of the heart muscle, on the advice of a doctor. But the problem was that this drug takes a long time to be eliminated from the body, which was shown by further WADA studies.

    It was prescribed to me by the doctor who performed the operation. At that time, everyone at the training camp in the Russian national team was given this drug. And then it turned out that he kept in the body for six to seven months. In fact, “Mildronat” is just an ascorbic acid for the heart,” Islam said in an interview with the “Hands Above” Youtube channel.

    After several months of trials and research, justice nevertheless prevailed. In July, Islam was cleared of all charges and allowed to fight in the UFC. USADA took into account the arguments of the athlete and considered heart surgery a good reason for taking the drug. At the same time, the American agency found that Islam had not used meldonium since January 2016.

    “After careful review of the case, USADA concluded that the extremely low concentration of meldonium in the athlete’s urine sample, combined with his explanation of use, was consistent with ingestion prior to the substance’s official ban effective January 1, 2016. According to the latest guidance proposed by WADA on June 30, 2016, for cases involving meldonium, Makhachev will not face disqualification for a positive test result, the anti-doping agency said in a statement.

    Already in September, the justified fighter began his remarkable series of victories, which continues to this day. I would like to hope that it will continue after the fight with Oliveira.

        “Shut down your stupid organization!” The West is furious over the decision to return the flag and anthem to Russia




        A stormy but expected reaction to the return of Russian boxers to the world stage.

        Russian athletes are starting to return to the international arena after the general hysteria. And these are not talks for the future, but a concrete decision. For more than six months, athletes from our country have been in global isolation from international competitions.

        Boxers can be the first to compete outside of Russia, and in the coming days. At the same time, they were returned not only the right to participate in tournaments, but were also allowed to use national symbols. It is expected that this decision caused a storm of negative emotions in the West.

        But the level of anger of commentators has crossed all reasonable limits.

        “All athletes should be given equal conditions”

        On October 5, the International Boxing Association (IBA) announced good news for all Russian sports on its official website. The Board of Directors of IBA made a strong-willed decision at the next meeting. The main body of the association canceled the suspension of Russian boxers, which was taken in connection with the complication of the political situation in the world.

        There are no grounds for banning the participation of our boxers in international competitions of any level. At the same time, the IBA decided not to make an interim decision, giving Russian athletes a neutral status. They will be able to use the flag, and in case of victory, the national anthem of Russia.

        – The IBA Board of Directors voted to cancel the previous decision and allow boxers from Russia and Belarus to compete in the IBA from today. The IBA strongly believes that politics should not have any impact on the sport. Therefore, all athletes should be given equal conditions. Both Russian and Belarusian teams will be able to perform under their own flags, and in case of winning a gold medal, national anthems will be played, the official website of the association quotes the decision of the board of directors.

        The right to work without restrictions in the IBA and at international competitions was again given to the technical representatives of our country, who were also previously suspended along with the athletes.

        If the decision of the organization remains in force, then on October 14, Russian representatives of the fair sex will be able to enter the rings in Montenegro, where the European Women’s Championship will be held.

        “Block Russia in all types of boxing!”

        The decision of the IBA, aimed at providing all athletes with equal rights, regardless of their citizenship and political views, met with little support in the West. In the very first minutes after the announcement of the decision, social networks were flooded with malicious comments about the association.

        “It’s a disgrace to boxing. This is not normal and will not help boxing in other situations,” wrote a fan from Sweden with the nickname @siamsweden.

        – This association is completely dependent on Russia. The decision to allow boxers to compete with the national flag will make the IBA pariahs among international federations. Countries will now boycott competitions, and boxing under the auspices of this association has no Olympic future, said James Toney, managing editor of Sportsbeat.

        – Block Russia in all types of boxing! – called for the suspension of our boxers both in amateurs and in professionals by the user @Poppen3.

        – This is a purely Russian, not an international association. A shame! A rainy day for boxing as a sport – disappointed in the actions of the IBA @iFirebrand.

        — What have you done? Absolutely disgusting decision. Is it the influence of Russia on your committee or its material interest? – @EyesFront1 is indignant.

        – You must be ashamed! No one should watch your fights, pay for tickets or perform at your competitions, @kitzkhan called for a boycott.

        – I hope that all democratic countries will leave the international boxing federation and create a new one! IBA is a corrupt mafia organization, – @leifvisby is indignant.

        “Close your stupid organization,” he called on IBA officials to liquidate the @MadBaltic association.

        After such comments, there is no doubt that the West is ready to go to extreme measures, if only Russian boxers could not take part in international competitions under the auspices of the IBA. It remains to believe in the stability and integrity of the international organization.
