Paddy Pimblet? Me it doesn’t excite me, as a result of to be trustworthy, I discover it not good. Finally, it isn’t that I discover him not good, however I discover that he throws himself like a newbie. And at the second he is come throughout opponents who did not have an excessive amount of of a battle. The just one who knew learn how to battle was the final one he confronted, and who additionally dominated the start of the primary spherical.
He’s simply actually good on the bottom, and I do not understand how guys find yourself having him behind when at first they dominate him. The proof is: (Arman) Tsarukyan challenged him, and we noticed no response (from him).
Far from being satisfied and seduced by the hype of the Baddy, Saint-Denis considers him quite the opposite as a rival too naive and inside his attain. He would due to this fact favor a duel towards the one who tries to impress the Englishman:
On the opposite hand, Tsarukyan, if he’s searching for an opponent, that excites me. Benoît Saint-Denis will not be there for the excitement, however for the sporting facet. My objective is to make wars and hit guys like Elizeu, whom I confronted and nobody else dares to take. Tsarukyan is considered one of them, and moreover, I noticed no response after he referred to as out Paddy. On the opposite hand, if Tsarukyan needs, Benoît Saint-Denis is there, and I’m able to make battle on him.
Always so frank in his speeches, Benoît Saint-Denis firmly rejects the concept of dealing with Paddy Pimblett, whose actual expertise he doubts. All with out actually placing the kinds. To see if the Briton will reply to this scathing assault!
