Former UFC fighter Artem Lobov compared his next rival Denis Berinchik to Paul Malignaggi, whom he defeated in 2019 under the auspices of the BKFC fistfights promotion.
“Berinchik has more serious achievements in amateur boxing, while Malignaggi has more professional achievements. …
In principle, both are high-quality. Of course, it’s hard to define it like that. I do not like these conversations when people say who is cooler – for example, Tyson or Mohammed Ali. It is impossible to determine, because what you look and see is one thing. And when a fighter finds himself in the ring against another fighter, then everything can turn out differently.
But we can definitely say that when I fought with Malignaggi, he had already finished his career. He was returning for our fight to make some money. And with Berinchik, the situation is different – he is a rather young boxer, he has an even greater career ahead of him. Therefore, I am interested in this fight. In my opinion, it is more complex. This shows that fistfights develop if athletes of this caliber move here, “said Artem Lobov in an interview with the Ushatayka: Sport-Express YouTube channel.
