“When purchasing a fighter like Odilov, one cannot help but think about his participation in the Grand Prix” – Badaev

Published

Aslanbek Badaev, vice-president of the ASA league, assessed the prospects of Faridun Odilov in the promotion.

— We signed Faridun Odilov before we announced the Grand Prix. This happened after the breakdown of his fight in Kazakhstan. I asked Shamil Zavurov: “Is Faridun Odilov a free agent?” Shamil said that we can negotiate. They didn’t last long, by the way. No one bargained, we offered decent money, which Faridun arranged. When purchasing such a fighter, one cannot help but think about his participation in the Grand Prix. Light heavyweight? I am skeptical about this, because Faridun was heavy, heavy.

Its skeleton and dimensions correspond to the average weight. But how often will he cope with the weight cut? There can be three months between fights. The important thing is how well Faridun will be able to drive weight. The decision has not yet been made. We don’t want to push and push him. But Faridun said, “Let the league decide what weight I should fight.” Yes, the league will decide, but we hope that Faridun will not have problems with cutting 84 kilograms, – Metaratings.ru quotes Badaev.
