What do you think about the format of armfight? Is it comfortable for you?
– I think armfight is the best show and set up that anyone has ever done. I love the level of the fighters. The venue in Poland is the best set up for such a show I have ever competed at.
Do you think the experience gained in armfights gives an advantage in next fights and armwrestling career?
– The 1 on 1 is ideal. You prepare for your opponent and only him.
What armfight would like to see? Why?
– There are two fights I very much want to see. And I wish my friend Igor would do a little switch. I would like to get a little payback with Genadi that is the fight I really want. But Rustam will be a great fight and I take anyone PAL puts in front of me. No exceptions, I took my first vendetta fight against the great man Puskar less than month after I fought Devon Larratt.
Second fight is Dave Chaffee, #2, fight against Puskar #1 puller. Denis has not earned that fight.
Name three potential rivals in armfight for yourself. Why they are interesting?
– First is Genadi to get back my winning record. Second is Levan because I want the challenge of that big man. He is very powerful. Third – tossup Denis Tsyplenkov or Dmitry Trubin. Both would be great fight, I believe. I’ve been working new lifting style in gym and it has played off huge. After all these years this is hardest I’ve worked. That was before I got the call now it gets even harder and more focus!
