Meč između Ivane Habazin i Claresse Shields nije održan nakon teškog incidenta na vaganju kada je napadnut trener hrvatske boksačice pri čemu mu je slomljena vilica i morao je na operaciju...

Claressa Shields javila je s malim odmakom nakon teškog incidenta u kojem je stradao trener Ivane Habazin.

"U zadnjih 24 sata imala sam dovoljno vremena razmisliti o svemu što se dogodilo i želim vam osobno prenijeti svoje mišljenje. Moje srce je s trenerom Alijem, trenerom koji je dao sve ovom sportu i brojnim boksačima tijekom dugačke karijere. Moje srce je s Ivanom Habazin čiji su hrabrost, disciplina i srce bili očiti u načinu na koji se pripremala za ovaj dan i proputovala dugačak put kako bi ispunila moj san o borbi u mom rodnom gradu Flintu", napisala je Shields.

Američka boksačica osudila je napad na Ivaninog trenera.

"Ono što se dogodilo je neoprostivo. I nepodnošljivo. To se nije smjelo dogoditi. I, koliko god se želim probuditi iz ove noćne more, s tim se danas suočavamo svi. To je stvarnost za moj grad Flint i za gradove širom zemlje i širom svijeta. Svi živimo s traumom. Živimo unutar i među mentalnim bolestima i ovisnostima. Živimo s očajničkom nadom u nešto bolje. Borimo se, ne uspijevamo, vraćamo se i pokušavamo ponovno. Možemo preuzeti odgovornost za sebe i tražiti od drugih i Boga da nam oproste. Možemo pokrenuti svoj san i još uvijek, jedna osoba, jedna sekunda sekunde, sve to može raznijeti."

Shields dodaje kako nema nikakve veze s napadom na Alija i ne opravdava ga.

"Još uvijek pokušavam shvatiti što se dogodilo i razmišljam o mojoj ulozi u tome što je dovelo do ovog napada. Nisam vidjela što se dogodilo i oslanjam se, poput mnogih vas, na ono što sam čula. Unatoč videozapisima koji su vani, napad koji se dogodio na trenera Alija nije bio u redu. Nisam iza toga i ni na koji način ne opravdavam ono što se dogodilo bez obzira na to što je rekao."

Hey everybody what’s up, the last 24 hours I’ve had time to reflect on what happened and I want you guys to hear it personally from me. My heart is with Coach Ali, a coach who has given his heart to this sport and to so many fighters over a long career. My heart is with Ivana Habazin, whose courage, discipline and heart were evident in the way she trained for this day and traveled a long distance to realize my dream of fighting in my hometown of Flint. My heart is with Boxing fans, especially fans of women’s boxing. My heart is with all the female boxers who have struggled for equality in this sport - and the world . And with those who have fought with all of their heart to elevate women’s boxing and open doors for the young women behind us. My heart is with my city of Flint, a city desperately in need of some good news— desperately in need of a moment of relief from the every day chaos and trauma of living with poverty and violence. My heart is with the team at Showtime and the hundreds of people who invested in my dream and stood behind me when I desired to give back to my hometown. LWhat happened yesterday is inexcusable. And unbearable. It should not have happened. And, as much as i want to wake up from this nightmare, this is what we all are facing today. This is the reality for my town of Flint, and in cities across the country- and around the world.. We are all living with trauma. We live in and among mental illness and addiction. We live with a desperate hope for something better. We struggle, we fail, we get back up and try again. We can take responsibility for ourselves and ask others and the Lord to forgive us. We can set our dream in motion and still, one person, one split second, can unravel it all. I am still sorting through what happened yesterday and reflecting on my role in what lead up to this attack. I did not see what happened and am relying, like so many of you, on what I have heard. Despite the videos that are out, the actions that took place against Coach Ali was not right. I do not stand for that and do not in any way justify what happened no matter what he said! I stand with Coach Ali and Ivana Habazin.
