Arijan Goricki Defeats Valerii Romanenia in Their Rematch in Zagreb
Sun, 17 Oct 2021
Arijan Goricki of Croatia avenged his defeat by outpointing Valerii Romanenia of Ukraine in their 8-round featherweight rematch in Zagreb, Croatia Saturday. Below is Goricki's report of their fight:
From the 1st round I stuck to the plan we made. The plan worked and we exhausted Valerii by the 4th round.
In the 5th round, we started with a stronger pace and tried to exhaust him. Valerii was really well prepared and ready, he managed to stay on his feet until the end of the fight. The goal was to knock him out in the 7th or 8th round.
As in the 1st fight, my eardrum ruptured, this time in my left ear.
This was our rematch fight. In the first fight Romanenia won after 6 rounds.
I have corrected my mistake and I am going according to the plan for my career. My best fights will be in the 10th and 12th rounds, I can't wait to be in such fights to show my full potential. I don't want to box a small number of rounds anymore, my style is most effective in a lot of rounds and I believe that I can carry power into the later rounds.
We plan the next fight for December 2021 and we are continuing with our plan for a better ranking and attack on the European title.
I am glad that I avenged this defeat, I knew that I lost because of myself. I could not sleep normally until I settled the bills, which I corrected tonight.
I would like to thank my team, which did a great job, and coach Marko Bracic for his excellent fighting tactics. I have to thank my friends and sponsors (Paradise Tomatoes, X-Logic, Dentum, Admiral, AX-Soling, Koenigimmo24.de) who help me in every fight, including this one, and to our way to rank on the world stage as soon as possible.
