And Alistair Overeem in the last fight won another russian heavyweight Sergey Pavlovich by technical knockout. Fight Volkov vs Overeem will be held Sat, Apr 20 Yubileyny Sports Palace, St. Petersburg Russia.
“A question of tactics. It is much deeper than a hit or a fight. A question of tactics – is a question of his strengths and weaknesses. Before the battle, it’s not customary to talk about tactics. There is such a tendency that all drummers start fighting with me in a duel. Since I beat them in a hit. Accordingly, in my preparation, we take this into account. From Overeem we will wait for both the wrestling and the clinches.
At the moment I do not want to make loud statements. Alistair Overeem is a very experienced fighter, and anything can happen in a fight with him.
First of all, I try to be myself. Do not play any role, do not wear masks. I am preparing for a fight with Overeem with Sergey Pavlovich. The experience of Sergey Pavlovich in a battle with Alistair Overeem did not help me much. Yes, we discussed with him some moments of his fight. But the main concept of the fight we are building with my team.”
