The Russian Hulk held a second training session in preparation for the upcoming top division tournament of the Unified Rating of Professional Armwrestling (URPA). ()
Denis plans to enter the first stage of the TOP 8 tournament in weight of about 140 kilograms.
As previously reported, the 8 world’s strongest professional armwrestlers will take part in the TOP 8 tournament. Depending on the results of their previous performances, the participants of the tournament will be divided into Champions and Contenders.
Denis returned to professional armwrestling after a two-year break and defeated Canadian arm wrestling star Devon Larratt, thereby claiming his right to participate in the TOP 8 in the Champions pool.
It is known that before the first stage of the tournament a draw will be held, which will distribute the participants in the Champion-Contender pairs.
Georgian giant Levan Saginashvili, the main rival of Denis in the fight for the title of the strongest armwrestler of the planet, also starts in the pool of Champions. Almost all sports experts called the possible match of these two stars the new “dream match”. But, according to the terms of the draw, the giants will not meet at the first stage of the TOP 8, which gives rivals extra time to prepare.
Denis noted that since the probability of his meeting with Levan does not exist before the second stage, he plans to increase the power and endurance indicators to the level necessary to defeat the Georgian athlete, who still did not know defeat in the professional arena.
