Dave Chaffee, the legend of the American armwrestling, a participant of the upcoming Vendetta All Stars in November, without a shadow of a doubt, declares his ambitions of the world’s professional armwrestler number one. And for this he has many reasons. ()
In April, giving an interview to Ryan Bowen, an Australian arm-wrestling video-blogger, Dave made it clear that his short-term and long-term goals are related to one thing - to defeat Andrei Pushkar and, thus, to achieve the first position in the world professional arm-wrestling.
What are his chances of achieving this result?
Dave's fight with Dmitry Trubin at Vendetta All Stars 2017, where Dave won the Intercontinental PAL belt in a brilliant fight, showed that the American athlete is very close to his goal. Of course, Dmitry attributes his loss to an old injury, and, of course, it played a role, but, nevertheless, the form in which he went to the duel seemed to guarantee him victory over any opponent.
But Dave Chaffee thought differently.
From the outside, Chaffee's victory looked powerful and fast. And the easiest way was to explain it by Dmitry’s trauma. But, in fact, behind it stood Dave's very serious preparation plus his fighting nature. After the match, Dave opened that this victory costed him 4 months of work only over his endurance.
Unlike in the US, in Europe there is not much known about Dave . He admits that he is not a very public guy.
