Vitaly Laletin was a worthy replacement for Denis Tsyplenkov. It seemed that his appearance could give Dmitry Trubin a chance to win, but in fact, Dmitry did not feel better. ()
Being one of those athletes who had very little time to prepare for a fight, Vitaly Laletin managed not only to get around the injury, but also to improve his performance to the highest level. Was it difficult for him to fight Dmitry Trubin?
Vitali, what do you remember about Malaysia?
- Malaysia I remember by its hospitality, great excursions. The first time I felt not like a competition, but as on vacation, with good people who surrounded me.
Congratulations on a successful debut! You had little time to prepare. What did you focus on?
- Thanks for the congratulation. Yes, in fact, I had little time to prepare. And I focused on the treatment of my right hand, since it was very sick. To a duel more or less I managed to restore it, but not to the end. I fought on painkillers.
When did you realize that you could win this fight? Did you have any strategy in case you start to lose?
- I realized that I could win this fight when the score was already 3-0. There was no strategy at all, I acted one at a time constantly - I punched Dmitry with toproll, just like the first three times.
