Artem Pashporin: I think SENSHI has a great future

SENSHI superstar Artem Pashporin is ready for his bout against Alessio Malatesta on February 26 in Varna, Bulgaria.

He defeated Vladislav Vlasenko from Ryazan in the main event of the tournament Triple Strike competition at the end of January, but the short time for recovery isn’t going to be a problem for Artem.

Pashporin spoke for the Instagram channel “kickboxingtv”, ahead of his clash at SENSHI 11.

kickboxingtv: Less than a month from your fight for the GPRO title and you have another match. Did you manage to recover, heal the damage?

Pashporin: Hey! This time the break between the fights turned out to be very short, only a month, but I knew this, and we built the training process in such a way that we would be in good shape on January 27, and go out in full combat readiness on February 26. The GPRO fight went according to my scenario, I didn’t get serious injuries, I didn’t crash much, now I have fully recovered and I’m reaching the peak of my form for a new fight.

kickboxingtv: It’s not your first time performing in SENSHI. What can you say about the organization? Are there any shortcomings?

Pashporin: This will be my 5th SENSHI fight. I really like the organization of the tournament, everything goes well and on time. Upon arrival, they give a schedule, and you immediately know what events will be at what time – this is very convenient. I can’t name any shortcomings in the organization, I know that the organizers have big plans for the future. I just want to wish them good luck, I think SENSHI has a great future with such a competent approach.
