Arlovski's manager blasts critics

by Kelsey Mowatt | source:

“I don’t think much of these critics. I’m very skeptical of what they say because the minute you’re on top, they’re your biggest advocate, and the minute you fall down they become your critics,” Khorlinsky told FCF. “To me these people don’t really mean much you know? You can talk about chins, you can talk about that, but I haven’t seen a single person to date who could take a punch right on the chin and not go down. Everybody goes down.”

“He’s not ready to hang it up. Obviously these world famous trainers like Greg Jackson see something that these critics don’t see, as otherwise why would they be wasting their time with Andrei?”

“He’s dying to get back in there. He’s dying to get a win. He will never accept four defeats in a row and quit the sport like that. He loves it too much, he loves the competition and he loves performing for people.”

“He’s had a couple really tough training camps. He had one with Greg Jackson and then he traveled to Russia to train with the Dagestan national wrestling team. Now he’ll be heading back to Albuquerque for his next camp.”

“It’s really difficult to find opponents. There are not many options out there, so whoever the promoter puts in front of you, you take the fight. If you say ‘I’m not going to do this’ or ‘I’m not going to do that,’ you may not fight for two more years.”

There has to be a better way for Andrei to make a living these days.

Agreed, it's actually very easy to tell when a fighters brain has had enough.

Arlovski doesn't need ProElite.  He needs RITC - and 205 wouldn't be a bad idea for him either.

Arlovski is a guy i root for in pretty much every fight. The fact that he has suffered some brutal knockouts is enough of a concern, but what really struck me was how he seemed to freeze up once he started to get hit a bit in his last fight. Physically he was moving well and his boxing looked great and once he got caught up in the clinch a bit he seemed to be a deer in headlights.

Arlovski never has planned on retiring, that I have seen. He immediately said he will not retire after the kharitonov fight. No surprise to see him fighting again. Hope he gets the win
