Default Re: Sergey Rozhnov pro debut against Owen Beck next week

I spoke on the phone with Sergey today. He said that after Athens Games was very frustrated and went into depression. Doesn’t want to train and to fight anymore. The Russian went to university and work at the same time. He was called by Hrunov to help in sparings Levedev and Povetkin. And he went back to the gym.
The future? He said that now will get some rest and will wait for Hrunov to appoint his next match. Rozhnov don’t have long plans for his career. Sergey was satisfied by the fight with Beck and said that he feels the years outside the ropes.
Rozhnov seems to have a very strange attitude. You would have thought after dominating someone of the caliber of Beck on your pro debut that you would be aiming for the absolute top of the sport.

Look forward to seeing him fight again, amazing to think that he could be ready to face a top 50 type next in only his second fight.
