Sergey got a spiral fracture of the humerus in a match with Alan Makeyev from Russia.
Here is how Sergey himself tells about it:
“At the very beginning of the fight, I found a convulsion in the area of the pronator, and when an opponent who, thanks to this, managed to get into a deep hook, began to attack, I had almost returned control of the situation. But, apparently, due to the fact that my hand was already twisted due to the pronator's convulsion, something went wrong and I did not even understand what had happened. I got medical help at the venue, and then I was taken to hospital in Gdynia. The road to the hospital took about an hour and all this time I felt a very strong pain. The Polish ambulance team refused to give me a painkiller, and such a fracture couldn’t be frozen.
