Khamzat Chimaev, still undefeated and coming off a first-round submission win over Kevin Holland, hopes that his next bout will take place in March… However, it seems that he cannot find an opponent.
And yes, he is frustrated about it. For, as he said in his recent vlog, a number of potential opponents have already turned him down:
Nobody wants to fight. F*ck these boys. They gave me four different countries, four different opponents. Nobody wants to fight.
It doesn’t matter (170 or 185 lbs), just need some opponent.
I’m going to fight somebody. I don’t know who. They change opponents all the time. Every week I have a new opponent, but nobody wants to fight.
Chimaev doesn’t want to engage in trash talking on Twitter. Instead, he just wants to fight somebody:
The trash talking, going on Twitter – this is not my game. I am the next for the title, so who are these guys going to fight?
The guys trash talk loud about me and ‘I want to fight you, I want to fight you!’ When it comes to the fight and signing the contract, they want to run away.
He is hyped up and is looking forward to his next opponent:
I’m always ready. We’re going to see what’s going to happen now. I think we’ll hope so for Vegas in March, we’ll see, but I don’t know who [I’m fighting].
