In the first stage of Top 8 Vitaly Laletin will meet with Krasimir Kostadinov. What is the Russian armwrestler preparing for this fight? ()
Vitaly, your expectations were met, you got Krasimir Kostadinov as rivals of the first stage. What do you think about this?
- Yes, I wanted to get to Krasimir, because our last fight with him in 2017 at the Zloty Tur was mixed. I won the last match against him in the finals, although I lost in the preliminary ones. He was unhappy. Therefore, I would like to meet with him and solve all the issues at the table.
Do you think it will be easy for you to fight him? Why?
- I don’t think it will be easy for me to fight him. We have already met many times, sometimes he defeated me, sometimes I won. I know that he is a very strong and experienced opponent. But, of course, and I have gained more strength. But I will not underestimate him. I will prepare for the fight with Krasimir in the same way as I was preparing for Levan.
