Russian kickboxing sensation Vladislav Tuinov ready to fight anyone

Nineteen year old kickboxing sensation Vladislav Tuinov gives rare interview on Episode 123 of The FightBox Podcast

In the largely talent driven business of combat sports, everyone is always asking who the next big star is going to be. At only nineteen years old, Russian kickboxer “The Diamond” Vladislav Tuinov has already defeated top international talent such as Cedric Manhoef, GLORY fighter Lukasz Plawecki and veteran Turkish kickboxer Erkan Varol. He currently holds championships in two weight divisions in the W5 Kickboxing promotion and is undefeated in Mix Fight Gala. His most current win is coming over Sebastian Mendez at MFG 21 this past Saturday May 6th in Heilbronn, Germany.

However, Tuinov is not yet going to rest on his laurels. This up-and-comer is ready for all challengers and is prepared to face the best in the world. After his victory at Mix Fight Gala 21 he was asked which fighter he would like to face next, but only said that he would be prepared to fight anybody. When I spoke to him after the event on Episode 123 of The FightBox Podcast, I probed him for more information, asking if he would like to challenge MFG star Enriko Kehl or perhaps tournament winner Arman Hambaryan.

“I’m really ready to fight anyone, but the most [desirable] fight, and it would be an honor to accept if there’s a chance, [would be] to fight against Enriko”. Regarding a possible fight with Hambaryan Tuinov said “If Hambaryan agrees to fight me, he has to take care of his chin, because I’ll break his chin”.

It looks like Vladislav Tuinov has no plans to slow down either. He says that he’s already scheduled for many fights in the remainder of 2017 and plans to compete at least once per month. In this episode he also discusses what motivates him to fight and what weight class he feels most comfortable at. He also gives a special message to his fans and to other potential opponents.

Also present during the interview is W5 Kickboxing President Sergey Chepinoga. He explains his theories about how to popularize the sport and help it grow.

“It doesn’t matter which nationality, it doesn’t matter who is my favorite, for me, I have to give them the chance to prove themselves,” says Chepinoga. “Only the best can win”.

Chepinoga also talks about his plans for the rest of the year. He mentions events to be held in Slovakia, Slovenia, as well as possibly in Italy and Holland.
