BISHKEK, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. World kickboxing champion Ruslan Abasov was killed in a car bomb blast in the Kyrgyz city of Tokmak on Thursday, police sources from Kyrgyzstan’s Chui region told Tass on Thursday.
“A car bomb went off after the athlete and his wife got into the (Toyota Land Cruiser) car,” police said, adding that “all details of the accident are being specified at the moment”. Abasov died on the way to hospital, while his wife is in grave condition. Field engineers and criminalists work at the site, but so far they cannot say what kind of an explosive device was used. “Several versions are being looked into, the main being a terrorist attack,” police sources said.
In the mid-2000s Abasov won the title of WBKF world champion. He also twice won the title of WAKO world champion, was WAKO intercontinental champion, as well as two-time champion of Europe. In 2006 he became WBKF kickboxing Eurasian champion (+93 kg).
