MESSAGE FROM WKN WORLD OFFICE :
” Regarding the problem extra sportive that took place in the latest edition of Ergen Ring Attest 13 in the city of Van on 14 of august 2010 where WKN representative of TURKEY for all the world and official supervisor of this show , Mr. Osman Yigin , had to face an unsupportive and inexplicable situation ( in a very dangerous and unsecure position ) after the WKN World championship between Erhan DENIZ ( TURKEY ) and Slavo POLUGIC ( SWITZERLAND ) ; WKN World office together with the WKN World directors have decided to suspend on an unlimited period the WKN activities in Turkey until a meeting will be organized between a WKN representative , the Turkish Kickboxing federation and a representative of the Turkish sport minister .
WKN has been active in TURKEY since more than 3 years now and has supported on the highest level the promotion ERGEN RING ATESI ( 12 editions were promoted without any problems ) , his promoter M. Orhan ERGEN and many Turkish sportsmen like Adem BOZKURT , Erkan VAROL , Seyda DUYGUN AYGUN , Ali LAKAYIS…..
This decision was not easy to take as we consider TURKEY as an important partner for WKN , with a high level on sport education and what happen this week end in the city of VAN has give about TURKEY a very negative image to the world sport and his whole community ”
As our first work and duty with WKN is to promote sport and its universal value ( respect , loyalty and friendship between countries and peoples all around the world ) , we cannot let such a situation to happen again and that is just unacceptable .
Now we are waiting for what will be the proposal coming from the national federation , minister of sport and Turkish promoter for such inacceptable situation to never ever happen again in TURKEY “
