“This is a very big event. Let’s start with the fact that we have two of the best boxer in this weight class today. Sasha Krasyuk at a press conference very nicely said that the upcoming fight was to be final. However, by coincidence the draw that it turned out that they poboksirovat now. I think that there should be a nice fight, which will please the audience.

It is sometimes said that the walls help, and sometimes they just give more voltage. Much harder sometimes to box at home than on the road. What Sasha with baggage Amateur fights, but they always went somewhere boxed, it will help.

The Mustache also is communication with people that where he comes, for him, always support local. I would not be surprised if during the battle in Riga for Sasha will hurt more people than Briedis”, – said in an interview Cliches Xsport.ua.
