Michael Todd: “I didn't expect Ermes to be so strong”


Probably, nobody expected that Ermes Gasparini was so strong at the tournament with Michael Todd. Was Michael ready for the fight?

Michael, to be honest – you didn’t expect that Ermes was so strong?

– No, I didn't expect him to be as strong as he was. I expected the same Ermes from Zloty Tur and he gained approximately 10kg and was VERY STRONG!

You let him win two fights. How did it happen?

– The first fight was my mistake, I didn't tighten my hand on the go & that allowed him to walk my hand @ loosen the strap.

The 2nd fight, the only mistake I made was not keeping the match in the center or my side of the table & he was able to put enough pressure to get my arm to the bone lock & I had to let up due to pain.

Did Ermes find your weak point?

– They told me that they built a tool "The Todd Pipe" specifically to transition from a top roll to a press! cheeky

Did you find his ones?

– I didn't really find a weakness, I just knew that if I keep the match in the center or my side of the table, he would either foul out or I would eventually pin him (kind of how Crazy George beats a lot of his opponents, they either foul out or he eventually pins them).

What is the most effective way to fight with Gasparini?

– U believe you need to have strong cupping strength & a good hook!

What are your general impressions about the tournament?

– I always enjoy the SuperMatch in Italy, but this was definitely my most difficult victory of the 4 times I've competed there.

What are your plans?

– I plan to enjoy the rest of my vacation & then get home & back to training! I haven't fully recovered from my pec injury, but should be ready for my Vendetta with Pushkar this summer!
