Astana Arlans losing 4-1, Hrgović and Sep to fight today!
Yesterday in Kazakhstan, it did not go well Astana Arlans boxers who lost to Cuba Domadores. Cubans are leading with 4-1 and Filip Hrgović and Hrvoje Sep will have a really difficult task today.
The only victory for the Arlans team was scored by Mardan Berikbayev who defeated Santiago Amador in the category of up to 47 kg.
Today Croatian boxer Filip Hrgović is to fight Yoandi Toirac, while Hrvoje Sep is to face two-times world champion Cesar de la Cruz who defeated him in a previous match.
„At World Championship in 2013 La Cruz defended the title, he was just playing with European champions, but nobody had it as hard as I did in December 2013 in WSB. I'm still convinced I was better in that match, but judges claimed differently. I'm happy I got a new chance to fight the best heavyweight of the world. It won't be easy for him and he knows it very well“, said Sep before leaving to Kazakhstan.
„I watched Toirac in Almanti and I believe he deserved more. I like boxing against Cubans, but I prefer to knock them out. I already have one in my collection and I will do my best that Toirac ends up like Larduet“, said Hrgović.
