“All of us watched the fight together. For professional boxing this is history in the making. Oleg had a hard time of it in the beginning. We watched his last fight against Samil Sam live as well, and like that fight it was an interesting bout from a technical standpoint. Oleg realized exactly what Rahman was afraid of, and that was thinking about the flurry of punches or punch that might break him. I am so thrilled that he had enough time to help Rahman realize that fear, and not only win but win convincingly.
Oleg is the true “Cinderella Man.” There was a great soviet movie called “Fate of a Man. The update could easily be a 12 round feature length film describing the unbreakable will of the Russian people.
On November 4th, I will be fighting in my hometown of Chekhov and I want to invite Oleg as a special Guest of Honor for that bout. Thank you very much Oleg and congratulations, we are very happy for you.”
Congratulations to Oleg from fans all over America, Russia, Kazakhstan and the entire world.
