Analysis of the battle
Anatoly Lomachenko – the secret of success
As he said himself, the Tendril in recent fights, he “stood still”. The firing of previous coach Sergey Vatamanyuk looked quite normal and will not seem a strange decision, after all, it Alexander went before the most important fight in his career.
The fight against Gassieva fully confirmed the correctness of this decision, because his coach was Anatoly Lomachenko, father Vasyl Lomachenko, who has been acknowledged to be leading experts in one or luchshim coach of our time. This man probably won the fight. Cirrus spent a wonderful 12 rounds, only sometimes allowing the opponent to throw any punches.
Such powerful performances from the Ukrainians haven’t had: he was mocking the opponent. Footwork, constant series of speed – it was really powerful. Oleksandr Usyk in the final was presented by Vasyl Lomachenko a heavy weight. Not surprisingly, all this happened in the moment when in the corner of the Ukrainian was Anatoly Lomachenko.
Gassiev bag? In this game Yes
For those who have not seen Murat Gassieva, it may seem that he is an ordinary bag. Fixed a boxer with a steel jaw. In fact, Russian is much more dangerous and powerful, but this evening Gassiev really looked so sad.
