Who do you organize these sparring? Alexander Gurov: My manager. By that time I was preparing for a fight with Rudiger Meem. At stake was a contest the European title. And Hey I well prepared – Rudiger I won by TKO in the fourth round.
And to it dealt with his brother the Olympic champion Thorsten Meem. A good year for me has turned out. vringe.com: How to look at the sparring Hay? AG: Not bad. We sparred twice and both times have been sparring on our notices. First David just me unpleasantly surprised. I am from him such pressure was not expecting – did not know that Hay was all about.
But in the next sparring I took a convincing revenge. Each round, we were the last. By the end of the third round of the British was able to Grogg. Hey, you need to give him his due, do not hesitate to chop me. We gave each other nuts, but I managed it better. I remember that we are applauding spectators, among whom was former world heavyweight champion champion Frank Bruno. vringe.com: Why did three years later, already in the official battle you lose Haye by KO in the first round?

What do you think of when this will megafayt? AG: Not that Haye will play for time – because the Klitschko brothers at this stage it looks better and Briton knows it.

AG: On the completion of my career I have not yet announced. Although his last fight actually spent more than three years ago. If I have received a decent offer, I can still once or twice to revive old. Last year I was offered a meeting with Marco Huck.
