Karim Zidan from BloodyElbow shares his prognosis on the main fights of M-1 Challenge 64 event
Volkov vs Smoldarev
I believe the main event between Vоlkov and Smoldarev is a highly competitive affair and won’t be an
easy contest to predict. Volkov did not look great in his last two fights, which does not make me too
confident in the current stage of his game. He seems motivated to improve with M-1 Global but I am not
winning the fight by a close decision.
Vasilevsky vs Shlemenko
The co-main event between Slava and Shlemenko is one of the most fascinating fights that M-1 Global
has done in recent memory. Shlemenko won his most recent fight by spinning back fist KO but I’m not
sure he can do the same thing to Vasilevsky. Slava is one of the most exciting fighters on the roster and I
could see him surprising Shlemenko in the fight. Again, this is another close fight but I think Slava could
win a decision.
