Patrik Kincl did it. After many years he returned Karlos Vémol’s defeat and remained the Oktagon middleweight champion. In addition, his rival announced the end of his career in this weight class, thus making him the biggest opponent in it. What did he say after the tournament?
Patrik Kincl has been waiting for this moment for years. He used to be friends with Karlos Vemola, but their paths diverged and now they are great rivals.
Their first match was won by Terminator and after that there was constant talk of a rematch, but it didn’t work out in XFN and they both fought in other organizations.
But when Kincl came to the Octagon in late 2021, it was clear where it was all heading. And the rematch eventually happened, even after various difficulties, with Kincl emerging the victor.
He won on points, even though Vemola’s corner thought they had the fight in the bag. “I was sure that every round was going my way. Nothing was happening from Karlos’ side.
No effective jab, just holding someone is not enough. After each round I knew he took more, which was visible on his face,” said Kincl in an interview with Sport.cz, who is enjoying a well-deserved rest after a tough fight.
Their first rematch in the Octagon was postponed due to Vemola’s health problems, and now Kincl in particular has had problems with a swollen hand.
“For seconds I had thoughts that I couldn’t enter the fight like this. I was scared that after five years, all the insults and all the massage, I would suddenly start with only some 30%,” he added.
Now we probably won’t see him in the cage for a few months. He probably won’t be going anywhere after such a struggle, plus it’s not entirely certain who would deserve a shot at the title. At the moment it looks most likely to be Robert Bryczek.
