“He has weaknesses – he sometimes misses blows, and quite significant blows, and he can miss the fight,” Storm said in an interview with Sport24. “Everyone has weaknesses – the main thing is to use them wisely. Faster than your opponent will take advantage of your weaknesses. As for Petya’s strengths, you need to understand that this is not his fight and boxing is what he breathes. Breathing from the first round to the last.”
At the same time, Shlemenko is sure that Yan, who enters the fight as a multiple favorite, will have no problems with underestimating his opponent.
“It seems to me that Petya has no problems with underestimating the opponent. And judging by his career, in those fights in which he was a clear favorite, he fought even better. I think that Petya reveals himself better in those fights in which he is a clear favorite, when he is clearly stronger than his opponent. I think there is no intrigue in this fight – the result is a foregone conclusion.”
Recall that the bantamweight unification fight between Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling will be the second most important event of the UFC 273 tournament, which will be held on April 9 in Jacksonville, Florida.
