Krasimir Kostadinov is one of the few who managed to defeat Levan Saginashvili after he gained weights and won the world and European championships in senior class. We had a talk with him about the first stage of the Top-8. ()
Krasimir, tell us a little about the results of the first round of Top-8. Did Vitaly Laletin's victory over Dmitry Trubin surprise you?
- Yes, I did not expect this victory!
Could Alex Kurdecha win, and if so, what, in your opinion, did he have enough?
- I think he could. Alex simply did not do everything possible in that situation. He lacked a bit of technical training.
How expected were the results for you?
- Laletin surprised me, and I did not expect that Levan would so easily win against Bresnan.
Which one of the matches did you like best?
- Kurdecha - Ongarbaev was a good match, the rest were not so interesting.
What pairs would you like to see in the next stage?
- I want to see the fight of Babayev vs Trubin or Bresnan vs Trubin, and in the upper grid fights of Ongarbaev vs Prudnik and Saginashvili vs Laletin.
