Grabovski vs The Kostitsyn Brothers

From the CP via TSN:

The reason for the rivalry remains unknown, however team mates on both sides believe it has something to do with sharing the same nationality. Older brother Andrei [Kostitsyn] would not discuss the feud but did state that [Mikhail] Grabovski “…talks too much in the Russian newspapers about me and my brother.”

While both players were born in Belarussia, Grabovski believes that Kostitsyn’s heritage should be questioned. “I think he is not Belarussian now, he is French because I never fight with Belarussian guys.”

Canadiens heavyweight Georges Laraque thought the prospect of the two flyweights throwing down would be hilarious.

“I think it would look really funny,” Laraque said of the potential tilt between the pair who are both generously listed at 5’11”.
