Teddy Atlas, who is the coach of the world champion under version WBC light heavyweight Oleksandr gvozdik, commented on the victory of Ukrainians over Dudu Ngumbu.
Atlas said that Carnations was nervous at first, since many Ukrainians came to support him.
Carnations have become better, he was a bit better than the opponent. Many Ukrainians came to support him because of what he had and took the time to catch the rhythm. But he won every round, began to dominate the body, to get the jab… He would have knocked him out, but something happened, what happened,
– quoted Atlas FightHype.
Atlas said that Ngumbu a rather strange fighter.
In our rivals are a strange guy. Alexander slightly exaggerates the situation. He remembered how this fight with a great champion Stevenson, and took that understanding with him to the ring, but the enemy was easier. But this is another step on the path of champion
summed up the Atlas.
Next match of Carnations should hold against mandatory Challenger American Marcus brown (23-0, 16 KO’s). Brown defeated badou Jack (22-2-3, 13 KOS) became the mandatory Challenger to Alexander’s belt. But the WBC allowed the Ukrainian first conduct a voluntary defense and Carnations successfully took advantage of the opportunity
