Serhiy Adamchuk took care of business against Varga, ready to defend title
Serhiy Adamchuk’s gameplan for his featherweight title fight against now former champion Gabriel Varga at GLORY 25 was simple — just win. The 23-year-old Ukrainian didn’t care about how the fight looked or how exciting it was, he just wanted the belt.
His win over Varga was far from a masterpiece, it was a grind-it-out victory and that is perfectly okay with Adamchuk, who’s record with GLORY is now boosted to 3-0.
“A lot of people like drama but this fight was technical, tactical, a smart fight. Varga is a difficult fighter, he is a top fighter, a champion. That’s why the fight had to be lie that,” Adamchuk said after the fight.
I am happy now that I won the belt, and that feeling will last for two or three days, but I know also that I made mistakes. A lot of people want this belt, I know this. So soon I will be back in training. At Mike’s Gym we don’t stop, like Mike Passenier says, we never give up.”
Adamchuk plans on taking a quick respite before getting back in the ring and beginning his reign as champion and he knows there will be plenty of fighters who want a piece of him.
“Everyone in GLORY is a top fighter, there are no easy guys, so this is motivation for me. They are hungry guys and they want this belt. But today is my day. I hope I can be ready to fight again soon. I love kickboxing and I love fighting so hopefully they have a fight for me soon,” Adamchuk commented.
“I am going to take only a little bit of rest and that’s it. We never give up, only go, go, go forward. So I hope to see you a lot of times here [at a post-fight press conference].
