– I didn’t really strain, I just set my angle, – said Sergey Kuzmin after the fight. – I controlled the fight completely, even if sometimes I let it work. My coach Gennady Yuryevich Mashyanov suggested hitting forward, I had some good moments. But I didn’t make it. It was probably influenced by the fact that I didn’t get in the ring for ten months. Now I will increase the pace and everything will be fine. I’m ready to get in the ring tomorrow too, I’m not particularly tired. I was in complete control of the fight. Look at his face and everything will become clear. As for the future, there have been no specific proposals.
