Renowned trainer Teddy Atlas shared his opinion about the decision of Alexander Carnation to retire.
“I just want Carnations were happy. Alexander is an honest guy, he fights in fair fights, live honest lives. You don’t have to fight if you don’t have to do this because you’ll be cheating yourself and people who are with you. You don’t want to be in a situation when in one day you’ll be sitting in the corner, I’ll look you in the eye, and there’s nothing there.
One thing to be smart, physically talented, know the technique to be in shape, but another to know why you’re there. And if you come to that you know why you’re not supposed to be there, then you need to be able to understand it.
Carnations – a pretty smart guy. I wanted to take a vacation for six months after a hard battle with Beterbiev. Alexander fought the good fight, won it, going into the tenth round against the special guy, the best Politeia the world,” said Atlas.
