The boxers refused to fight and ran away, but E.Tsendbaata­r was hit by a car as he ran. Currently, he is being treated at the National Trauma and Orthopedic Research Center of Mongolia.

The suspects told local reporters, “It is true that we argued and fought, but we didn’t hit him with a car. That was another person.”
