I have read an article on armpower.net about the possible future supermatches between the top North American pullers and the top European pullers. The truth is that I kind of lost my interest in armwrestling as a fan after the “Contract” thing started in our sport. In fact having contract is a good thing but if this is having negative effects in the way to unable top athletes pulling eachother then it is not so good from the view of the spectators. WAL for sure brought an excitement to the North American armwrestling world but also divided the top athletes in the world. Looks like now the North American pullers are free to pull at wherever they would like to and this once again excited me as the fan that lives in me.
To me the best Vendettas would be as follows:
· Travis Bagent is the best left handed guy in North America but he had some hard times against Dave Chaffee when I watched the Vegas event a few weeks ago. I am sure that Dave trained his left very good and his left is now very strong but not sure if as strong as Cyplenkov’s left hand. So IMO Denis would beat Travis if both athletes are ready for such event. But Cyplenkov has some health issues and on the article I did not see Travis’s name so I would not think they would be involved in the next Vendetta event. So Devon Larratt vs Oleg Zhokh and Chaffee vs Pushkar would be good left hand Vendettas. In fact Vitaly Laletin vs Devon Larratt left hand Vendetta would also be very exciting one.
· Rustam Babayev vs Todd Hutchings, Ermes Gasparini vs Todd Hutchings, Zoloev Hadzimurat vs Rustam Babayev would be very good Vendettas as well. Sasho vs Babayev or Sasho vs Zoloev or even Sasho vs Hutchings would be breathcutting Vendettas. Any Vendetta with Sasho against those mentioned names would be great but IMO he vs Hutchings would be the most interesting as both pullers has incredible side pressure.
