Interview with Andrej “AK-47” Kedves
On November 11 in Kosice, Andrej Kedves vs Daniel Puertas Gallardo!
- SCALEMAN: How does it feel to finally be fighting for a W5 title?
ANDREJ: Since my debut fight I wanted to fight for a W5 title. For me it is a great pleasure to fight for a title of such an organization. I am very grateful that I have been given this opportunity. Now I just hope I use my chance wisely.
- SCALEMAN: Your opponent is very experienced and has a great Win to KO ratio. Are you worried about his strength, especially in regards to his counters?
ANDREJ: I know my opponent is very skilled and that he has ended many fights by KO. I’m not worried about that because I consider my previous opponents to also have been dangerous. I’m aware of his advantages and therefore believe I will find a solution.
- SCALEMAN: You are now 6-0 in W5 fights and only 1 loss in your professional career. What has been the secret to your success so far?
ANDREJ: I think that the secret to my success is in the fact that I prepare as much as I can for every single fight. I have always been very motivated to win and that is all I care about and all I see in front of me every time I step into the ring.
- SCALEMAN: How has W5’s Summer Camp helped you prepare for these fights? Do you plan on continuing to participate in W5’s Summer Camps to improve your style?
ANDREJ: W5 Summer camp has helped a lot. It was the main training for me leading into my last fight and this fight. It was really 10 days of intense training. I found the sparring, technical and strength trainings to be particularly excellent. Also, there were a lot of good fighters and coaches from whom I was able to learn a lot of new things, which has really helped with my preparations for a fight and improvement as a fighter. And yes I do plan on taking part in future W5 camps, I think they are a great value to any fighter.
- SCALEMAN: What would you like to say to your fans and W5 fans?
ANDREJ: I would like to say thank you to everyone who follows and supports me. Also, for all W5 fans, keep following their great event and great fights.
