It became known how the conflict between Shlemenko and Sarnavskiy started

Despite the fact that Alexander Shlemenko fired Alexander Sarnavskiy from his team only three months ago, the rift in their relationship began four years before that, when “Tiger” withdrew from a fight against Yusuf Raissov after ignoring “Storm’s” opinion.

About this in an interview. Alexander Lyutikov told Sarnavskiy’s sparring partner, Artem Reznikov.

“After Alexander lost consciousness before his fight with Yusuf Raissov, they had a not very good conversation with Alexander Shlemenko, who did not support him at that moment,” said the Kazakh representative. “Alexander Shlemenko wanted him to fight and he lost consciousness and was in no condition to fight. He fainted at the weigh-in and withdrew from the fight.”

“Shlemenko didn’t come to his hospital to check on him. He said that he had to fight, and they had a bad conversation, unfriendly. And from that moment they started to cool down, and Sanya started going to training camps. After he didn’t make weight, lost consciousness, he immediately came to Krasnoyarsk to lift the fight”

Last month, Shlemenko, commenting on his mentee’s dismissal, explained that over the past two years, Sarnavskiy had turned down all of his offers for appearances and joint team events, and refused to headline an SFC league event in Omsk, in the main event of which Andrei Koreshkov eventually fought in.
