Experts' view on the Vendetta All Stars: Michael Todd vs Andrey Pushkar ()
We all know that either Pushkar will flash Michael or most likely Michael will win once the match stops.
Most of us has minuses and pluses in this sport. Of course, any world level athlete is able to pull in and outside but not many people have this ability to be the very best at it except pullers like Brzenk, Larratt and maybe a few others. Pushkar is known with the perfect beginning followed by a powerful hit. Of course, he has endurance as well but not so well rounded during the match while Michael is a defensive puller and his defence is as good as Pushkar’s offense. Michael wins most of the matches that he stops his opponents’ first hit while he lost against a few pullers even though he stopped them after the go. Brzenk, Larratt, Gasparini and Trubin are the names that come to my mind that were able to beat Michael after the matches were stopped at some point. All four mentioned pullers are well rounded pullers with great endurance. They all could follow a defensive strategy against Michael till they gained the hand control and finished the matches with a quick shoulder press. I have been watching Pushkar for near 15 years and till today I did not see him performing this kind of strategy. Of course, he can pull side, in, out and even shoulder press but I don’t remember him applying a great combination of these styles within the same match. His pulling style is all about a powerful hit and if the match continues then followed by a constant pressure in one way.
