According to USA Today, Dirrell issued a statement soon after in which he said he was "sorry for what my coach has done".

Russell added that, "I want to apologize for the gladiators".

This marks Dirrell's 26th victory, having only lost twice, both to British boxers Carl Froch and James DeGale.

"We boys are gladiators, and sometimes emotions get the best of us", Russell said. "I forgive Uzcategui. I forgive his camp".
