“I want to officially declare that I am ending my career as a fighter. The reason for this decision was heart problems. It does not take out the loads of a professional athlete – two workouts a day. This problem has nothing to do with the battles – it has been haunting me for a long time, from the time when I worked in the riot police. But then it was not possible to track the dynamics. Now, before each fight, I was examined at Luzhniki, where they noted that my health was deteriorating. Doctors put before a choice: “Either in the box, or to the grandchildren.” I chose life, the road to my grandchildren. I was not forbidden to train, but it was recommended to do it without diligence. They put him on lifelong use of pills.
But I want to tell the fans the main thing – I remain part of the TOP DOG family. Now I train at the TOP DOG CLUB. TOP DOG, as it was in my heart, it remains there!” Selivanov said.
Recall that the last fight of the Selivanovs at the TOP DOG 16 tournament was against Artur “The King” Sviridov. The fight ended with the victory of Alexei by unanimous decision of the judges. In fisticuffs, Selivanov won four victories and suffered one defeat.
