He fights with both arms, though he prefers his left; his right is more injured. He is his own coach, but he also coaches other people and has great achievements in that field. His student took the podium at the last Worlds.
Now Sergey Tokarev is going to test his own skills. On 24th October, at Vendetta in Vegas, he will face the legend of American armwrestling – Richard Lupkes. What are his expectations?
I expect to test my strength – says Tokarev. – I never underestimate an opponent – everyone deserves to be treated seriously, but in the end – there can be only one winner.
He says a little, but does a lot. He focuses on his actions and hard training, not on words and speculations. That’s why his thoughts on the upcoming fight are also up to the point.
I think Lupkes will do anything to win. He’s a warrior, with lots of experience, but young wolves, or shall I say bears, also want to fight – says Sergey.
Sergey Tokarev and Richard Lupkes will fight in the superheavyweight category, 95 + kg.
I never met Lupkes before, but he seems like a nice guy. We’ll see how he does at the table – says Tokarev, thus suggesting we’re in for a war at the table.
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.
