The boxing world grieved for the death of its cousin, Velichkov, before his true identity was revealed.

Velichkov told BTV Bulgaria: & # 39; He has been fighting my card since 2018. He told me there was a problem, the coach knew. I don't know why he fought with my card. He said he didn't want any losses in his name. & # 39;

Velichkov said he was shocked to hear about his cousin.

& # 39; He fought in a professional match, but he's not in the heavyweight division, so you don't expect such a & # 39; n terrible tragedy, & # 39; he said to the Bulgarian broadcaster.

The former president of the professional boxing union of Bulgaria condemned Albanian practices and suggested that Stanchov be paid to fight.

The boxing world initially grieved for the death of Stanchov's cousin Isus Velichkov, including the World Boxing Council

& # 39; The Federation itself is a sham. The problem is that this boy had a ban. To prevent this, he played with someone else's identity. He got his fake permit with the help of the federation, I think, because there is no other way, & # 39; told Georgi Ezekiev Sport live.

He added: & # 39; They are weak, they play to lose. & # 39;

His mother said that Stanchov's dream was like the legendary Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, who twice had the European heavyweight title between 2012 and 2016.
