What will Krasimir Kostadinov and Alex Kurdecha show us in the transition fight to Top 8 2020? ()
On the Zloty Tur of 2019, Krasimir Kostadinov took the second place in the open weight category and thereby got the opportunity to compete in the passing match for the right to participate in Top 8 2020. Alex Kurdecha, who in the past Top 8 took seventh place, will compete with Krasimir. Perhaps this will be the most interesting match of the event, which will be held on February 9, since this pair has no obvious favorites, unlike the pair Dave Chaffee - Deivydas Rimkus. And at the same time, both rivals are very well known and loved by the public, in contrast to the transitional match in up to 95 kg.
To analyze the fight and present its progress, let us recall Alex's fight against Rustam Babayev. Why exactly this one? It's simple, Krasimir’s fighting technique is quite similar to Rustam’s technique. Alex was able to pick up the key to Rustam and unconditionally defeat him with a score of 6-0, why does it make sense to consider that the rivals are quite equal and Alex is not a clear favorite this time?
Krasimir, unlike Rustam, is a heavyweight by nature, and though he is not superheavyweight like Alex, but the difference in anthropometry between these athletes is not as great as it was between Alex and Rustam.
