The famous American trainer recognized the advantage of his compatriot over the Ukrainian boxer.

David Benavidez narrowly defeated Alexander Gvozdyk in a fair fight. This is what the former Ukrainian coach, the famous American specialist Teddy Atlas, thinks.

According to the specialist, the advantage of his compatriot is unquestionable; Benavidez was able to finish the fight ahead of schedule, however, he slowed down a bit towards the end.

“The reason I picked Gvozdyk before the fight was because he wasn’t tired yet. But the difference here is that one guy throws paintballs that you can’t even feel through your shirt, and the other one shoots of real live rounds .

On the other hand, David had never fought a bigger man. For me he is the greatest gentleman in this match. Benavidez really took his foot off the gas pedal at a certain point,” Boxing Scene quoted Atlas as saying.

We remind you that Alexander Gvozdyk lost to David Benavidez by unanimous decision.

Earlier, Gvozdyk commented for the first time on the loss to Benavidez.
