Once Mindaugas Tarasaitis promises, he brings his promise to life. He proved it at China Open. What fights we should expect from him at Zloty Tur? ()
You promised to win both classes in China and you manage to do it on 75%. How did you like it? What can you tell about Roman Mantyka?
- Yes, I did expect a good result since my shape is getting better and better. I was still not sure about my left arm, it doesn't do well lately. Meanwhile, Roman felt super strong on his left. I didn't really know him before the China event and wasn't ready for his triceps press move in our first fight. I think that move even stretched my pronator. And the second fight ended on fouls. After all, I still felt that Roman was much stronger on the left. But on the right arm, it's a different story. Didn't feel him at all. So, I consider it as a good result for me, since he will now go to Zloty at 86 kg, while I am only 70 kg.
What classes are you going to pull at Zloty Tur? Who do you expect to meet there?
- I will win 70 kg on the right hand and attempt to win it on the left. I hope that all the strongest armwrestlers will show up.
