A massive respect and thanks to President @za_kadyrov_95 and the team at @akhmat_kickboxing for putting on a great event, and taking care of us so well.
A real pleasure to visit #grozny #russia for the first time. We didn't know what to expect when we arrived, but have been treated superbly by all and look forward, and hope to return again in the future.
Unfortunately it wasn't @mat.dmt 's night tonight - on only 2 weeks notice, he faced a much more experienced @turpaltokaev for the @wkf_office #heavyweight #worldtitle
Mateusz started very well, some great low kicks and movement, but Turpal was relentless and poker-faced, soaking up everything without the flicker of emotion. From round 3 his experience and fitness started to show and landed some very heavy clean shots on Mat, dropping him for 8 counts. Mat dug deep and rose to his feet everytime, to hear the final bell, but the fight was Turpal's, no argument.
I hope this feeds Mat's motivation and confidence now, to push further and harder to achieve his goals, and makes him realise that he can share the ring with the worlds top heavyweights and hold his own.
At only 25 he has plenty more to learn and develop, but I have great confidence for the future, watch this space!
