Evgeny Prudnik in Top-8 will pull with his old rival - Rustam Babayev. Will the fight be equal? Or will Evgeny be able to counter Rustam with very serious preparation? ()
Evgeny, are you satisfied with the draw?
- I am pleased with the draw. Rustam is the only rival I know well and we have already met many times in fights. He, of course, he can prepare something new, but in general, I know his tactics, behavior model and pulling technique well. I have repeatedly won, so I have every chance of getting into the top four.
You have met with Rustam several times at the table. Are you interested in pulling him again?
- Yes, we met with him several times, but never met in the armfight, only in the usual grid. I wonder how we will distribute the forces in the six-round duel. And here you can use different techniques in different rounds. In the usual fight, there are no such opportunities; you need to use all the power, the crown technique. And here you can be cunning. You can use different styles throughout all six rounds.
What do you think will be your basis in the fight against Babayev: strength, endurance, technique or strategy?
- Yes, right, strength, endurance, technology and strategy - everything. I need everything for Babaiev.
