We caught him on his bicycle riding to the airport and asked him a few questions.

You officiate in Vilnius lithuania last month for BB7 ,what was your first impression?
BB is a fresh and exciting concept.What better way to try to find a successor (s) to the K –brothers

Do you see a future for that product?
Absolutely everyone I discuss BB with agrees with the BB idea, especially now with nothing happening in the Heavyweight division.They respect BB because they all know that Eurosport is the top sports channel in Europe.

BB brings world class boxing and with all humility , world class officials to different parts of the world creating more interest in our sport.Really helping to keep Boxing alive.
