Andrey Pushkar vs Michael Todd fight review by Engin Terzi. ()
Both Michael Todd and Andrey Pushkar looked huge at Zloty Tur. Right after my weigh in I went to the breakfast and I sat right by the window. Andrey, Dmitry [Trubin] and Michael were asked to pose for picture and because there was more light by the window they came right by where I sat. It was a bad feeling for me as they were so huge. After I saw them live I felt like Michael would win because Pushkar always depends in his strength and Michael looked big and strong enough to stop Pushkar.
When I saw the first start without strap I realised that Pushkar had chance to beat Michael as Michael slipped under Pushkar’s hand unlike the equal slips that they had in the super match that they had years ago. With the go in strap, Pushkar easily beat Michael and I was convinced that he could do this enough to win the Vendetta. Second round unlike the first round Michael stopped Pushkar, but Andrey managed to win the round even though Michael has told me that it was not a pin. I realized that Michael was making the set ups longer and Pushkar did not realize that this was making him tired. At the third round Michael managed to slip equally right at the center and this was a sign that Pushkar was getting exhausted. Andrey looked stronger than Michael but not enough to pin him. He was doing his best but just could not pin him. Once Pushkar was getting tired, he was intentionally making fouls. Score became 2-1 after 3 rounds, and the fourth round was same as third round and now score became 2-2.
