BoxNation and IFL TV presenter Kugan Cassius has been banned from attending the upcoming Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko fight in a press capacity.
Cassius claims Klitschko manager Bernd Boente, who previously halted an appearance at the Klitschko v Tyson Fury bout, has once again put a block on the Londoner being allowed access.
In a social media post on his Facebook account, an irate Cassius – who has been posting videos during fight week – made the following announcement:
“I hate the world right now. Just to let you know, Bernd Bonte, the silver-haired midget p***k who is Wladimir Klitschko’s manager has barred me from going to Joshua v Klitschko tomorrow night,” revealed Cassius.
“18 months ago, he banned me from interviewing Klitschko as apparently, i am too involved with Tyson Fury and Team Fury. So after an argument a year ago, I decided to stay away from Team Klitschko for the whole of the build up to this Joshua fight. But
“But still, the little dwarf c**t has done this. Been going to Matchroom shows for seven years, Ihasn’tsnt missed one in SEVEN years and its not them, its Klitschko’s lot.
“But this is actually heart-breaking that I won’t be there for the biggest fight in British boxing. My life is f***ing boxing. Right now I hate the sport. F**k you Bernd Boente you complete and utter C**T!”
It’s still not known whether anything has been resolved as Cassius is a close friend to Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, who might have to build a few bridges in order for the interviewer to have Boente’s decision reversed.
Hearn later revealed Cassius was allowed to attend the fight but not in the press area.
