Karlos Vémola after his defeat to Patrik Kinclo decided to quit the middleweight division, which is listed up to 84 kilograms. His career is not over, he will continue in the welterweight division where he doesn’t have to drop this much.
It was a really tough night for him. Karlos Vémola thought he was going to be the winner on points, but the judges clearly decided that his opponent Patrik Kincl was the winner.
Vémola disappeared after the verdict was announced and didn’t even shake hands with Kincl. He then left the O2 Arena during the press conference and headed to the hospital.
Fans were waiting for his statement, which is out now. In it, Vemola announced his retirement from the middleweight division as he has been having more and more trouble losing lately.
At the same time, this is far from his end in the Octagon, where he has more fights lined up. One of them is with Attila Vegh, which shouldn’t come down to anything in the end.
“The long awaited fight is over and it didn’t go the way I wanted. Even though a lot of people said I won it, it doesn’t matter now because I should have ended it and left no one in doubt. I went into the fifth round thinking I was in the lead.
If I knew I wasn’t, I would have gone into the last round differently and I would have risked getting knocked out… Patrick is the champion, that’s just the way it is. If you want to beat a champion, you have to run him over or finish him, and unfortunately I didn’t do that.
I won’t repeat what I did to my family, friends, team and everyone around me with dropping to 84, so I don’t want to go back to that weight. No more gambling with my own health. There are younger and better guys out there for it, and my body just doesn’t cut it anymore, that’s for sure.
I’m sorry I didn’t make it to the post-fight press conference, but unfortunately my eyes took a beating in the fight and I had to go straight to the hospital for a check-up. Who knows me knows that I respect my opponents and I can do my duty even after a loss, but my health came first.
Now I have time to pull myself together. But my career is not over yet. I have already arranged fights with the Octagon and I will definitely keep them, after all I am the welterweight champion. We’ll see what happens next. I’ll think about everything in peace.
I’ll talk more about it soon on Fight Cast, where I accepted the invitation. But until then I want to rest a little bit and spend some time with my family, which I haven’t had time for lately because of my preparation for the fight. Family just comes first.
So try to give me some peace and quiet. Thanks again to everyone for their support, especially all my partners who have stood by me through thick and thin. I appreciate it,“ told fans on Instagram.
Thus, the Kincelo and Attila fight, which was joked about after the fight and at the press conference, is not on the agenda, because certainly neither of the aforementioned wants to take away from Vémol this moment of his career, which he has been waiting for for a long time.
