Last minute news: Zhuravlev's opponent at LEGEND III is replaced
Zhuravlev's new opponent is Michal Turynski – Szczepkowski's fellow countryman, champion of Poland in kickboxing and muay-thai, two-time winner of the WAKO K-1 World Championship.
Vladimir Voytekhovsky, tournament matchmaker, commented on the situation:
Due to his injury, Tomasz will not be able to fight with Pavel Zhuravlev. Michal Turynski was selected to replace him. He comes from Poland, too. 2 weeks ago he won a fight by knockout
Pavel Zhuravlev has an optimistic approach to the unexpected substitution:
Last-minute changes are not something one would ever welcome... However, there were some objective reasons for that. I don't know anything so far about my opponent. A strategy... We have only one strategy – to win within the shortest time possible. I don't think we are going to change it
«LEGEND III: Pour Homme» Fighting Show will kick off this Saturday in Milan at Mediolanum Forum.
