BUSENAZ’S GOAL IS THE FINAL
Busenaz said the opener was still the toughest match of the tournament.The fact that the organization is in our country is a separate burden on us. Our opponent is injured. He had to stop, frankly, I was not very happy. I like to fight elbow-to-elbow opponents more. I like to eat better. My best wishes to him. He is a dear friend of mine overseas. We will do our best to get our name in the final in the future.‘ he said.
Busenaz said he noticed the crowd supporting him when he entered the ring.I don’t talk to anyone before the match, I saw who was coming when I went to the ring. I saw that everyone came from Trabzon, there are people from all over our country. When I left, I said, ‘You have to do your best, these people are here for you’. The match was difficult, I couldn’t show my full performance, but I hope we will go to the exit. The objective is always the championship. I haven’t even looked at the name of my next opponent. I just know you’re American‘ he concluded.
