KHETAG PLIEV HAS FIGHTING LICENSE REVOKED
Montreal, Quebec (Canada), Wednesday January 17th 2018 – Earlier today, the Régie des alcools des courses et des jeux, Quebec’s governing body for combat sports, has submitted to the TKO office a decision in which it was determined that Khetag Pliev’s license to compete has been revoked due to his failure to fully disclose information on his original license application.
Pliev was suspended in June 2015 by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports (CCES) following a doping violation. The suspension is in effect until Mach 18th, 2019 – however Pliev did not provide this information when applying for a license to compete at TKO39. As such, the Quebec athletic commission has revoked his license effective immediately. Pliev will only be allowed to re-apply for a license to compete in Quebec once his suspension with the CCES is over (March 18th, 2019).
Despite the above, the commission has not changed the result of his TKO39 fight with Francis Charbonneau.
