Madison Square Garden is one of the best fighting venues in the world.
It was a very difficult time after the fall of the Soviet Union. Jobs were difficult, and you had to fight to have anything nice.
From the beginning, when my brother Vadim first took me to the boxing gym at 10, I was able to punch hard, and the coach always put me with older boys because of that.
My brothers first brought me to boxing. I dedicate the fights to them and my father and fight for my family.
This is boxing. It's not like a baseball game. The fighters say, 'I need a lot of money or I don't fight, because it's very dangerous.'
For me, it's very hard to train too much, just sparring, sparring, sparring. It's boring.
I always watch NHL, NBA, NFL games and don't miss tennis and golf.
In general, I enjoy watching different sport tournaments and competitions.
