UKRAINIAN boxer Denys Berinchyk made a powerful statement by donning a full soldier’s outfit en route to the ring.
Berinchyk showed solidarity with his fellow Ukrainians who, prior to his clash with Yvan Mendy, repelled a nearly year-long Russian invasion by coming out in military clothes.
His outfit included a helmet and what appeared to be a bulletproof vest, emblazoned with the flag of his home country.
Boxing fans were quick to comment on the touching tribute, saying, “Now that’s a tribute.
Another said: “Denys Berinchyk is honoring his home country.”
And another said: “LEGEND.”
One remarked, “This is hard AF.”
Another chimed in: “A thousand dead and “250,000 wounded Ukrainians in 9 months”.
“I wouldn’t want to get in a ring with someone who got out of this mess.
“It makes every other conflict on Earth look like child’s play.”
Rising super featherweight champion Royston Barney Smith started the card with a stunning display against Cruz Perez.
