After the last failure in a heavy fight with Andrey Pushkar, Lupkes has a chance to rebuild his image of one of the top and undefeated armwrestlers in the USA. This time he will face Sergey Tokarev. ()

Richard Lupkes, top American armwrestler, will fight again in Vendetta in Vegas. This time in the superheavyweight category, 95 + kg, with the Ukrainian arm Sergey Tokarev. After the last failure in a heavy fight with Andrey Pushkar, Lupkes has a chance to rebuild his image of one of the top and undefeated armwrestlers in the USA.

Like a truck – that's how Lukpes summed up Andrey's strength after the last fight.

Andrey is number one for a reason, I have lots of respect for him – says Lupkes. - It was great fighting him, but I felt like a small child.

The score of the Lupkes – Pushkar fight was crushing – 0:6, but Richard is a veteran and has a lot of distance. This time he will also face a younger, top armwrestler.

I hope I do better this time, I'm really waiting for this fight – says Lupkes.

- Andrey was a tough opponent. I don't know Sergey, I only know he's younger!

Lupkes spends 2-3 hours a day in a gym.

I work with weights every day and stay healthy. I train with Igor's grips and incorporate his techniques into my workouts. This will be fun! - says Richard.

Lupkes prefers to fight with his right arm. His toughest opponents so far were the technical guru – John Brzenk, the quick-hitting Arson, Michael Todd – fanous or his technique, and super-strong Denis Tsyplenkov.

Lupkes loves a challenge and the atmosphere of brotherhood in armwrestling., meeting new people and old friends. How will he do at the upcoming Vendetta? Fingers crossed!

 

Armfight #44 will take place on 24th October in Las Vegas, on one of the scenes at Fremont Street. There will also be a TV broadcast in CBS Sport Network.
