Then to Los Angeles. We’ll spend a couple of days there and drive to Las Vegas by car. Tickets are on the Internet. The only difficulty: these are very long flights. We will have a 20-hour flight. The minus is that we arrive just a week before the fight. June 12 departure, the battle of the 20th. It’s not possible to fly out before, because there are only options for 40 hours on the road with several transfers. Next to me there will not be a lot of people I need – sparring partners, trainers. Due to the fact that the battle was originally planned to be held in Canada, our entire team received Canadian visas. And when the battle was moved to the USA, all consulates were already closed. As a result, only one coach will fly to America with me – Taras Kiyashko, he has a visa. ”On account of 31-year-old Volkov, there were 31 victories and 7 defeats in professional mixed martial arts. 29-year-old Blades won 13 victories with two defeats, and one of Curtis's fights were declared invalid.
