Before the fight between Patrik Kincelo and Karlos Vemola, there was a question whether they would shake hands. They both agreed, but it didn’t happen. Vémola left the cage immediately after the verdict and got a lot of hate on social media for it. He has now commented on the situation.
Fans have been waiting for a rematch between Kincelo and Vemeola for years. It finally happened on May 20, when the reigning champion Kincl became the winner, winning sovereignly on points.
Pavol Neruda went to put the belt on him and before he could do so, Vémola was already out of the cage. He didn’t even shake hands with anyone and disappeared into the bowels of the O2 Arena, from which he went to the hospital during the press conference.
This gesture was widely criticized after the game, after all, the handshake is a staple that shouldn’t disappear from the sport. Otherwise his reputation with the wider community will never be good.
Vémola has now commented on the situation and admitted that he made a mistake, but in the rush of emotion he was simply not interested in anything other than getting away as quickly as possible.
“It was probably a big mistake, because of course I should have given him my hand. If only for the reason that I knew that people would deal with it and that he would deal with it too and would come back to it. It should have happened to save me all this.
It was in such a heated match and in such a post-match trance and shock for me at the same time. It was just the last thing on my mind. I’m sorry for every loss, of course, but the thing I was most sorry about was..
I’ve been working with my coaches for 15 years and they apologized to me in person and publicly for the first time in 15 years. Coaches Alexis and Paul apologized to me, which has never happened to me before… It was such a blow to me that I picked myself up and left. I didn’t watch the interview with Ondra and forgot to shake his hand and all that.
But I could have saved myself all the bullshit. It wouldn’t have killed me. It was a mistake, but it’s already happened so what? I don’t think Patrick would even care about my handshake, for that matter. I should have done it though,” he said in a wide-ranging interview with Fight Cast One.
He also talked about the end of his career, which will happen after his fight with Attila Vegh. But until then, he would like to cut a few more fights and enjoy the last year of his wrestling life to the fullest.
