Marpo vs. Rytmus? WeAreXFN
One of the most anticipated fights this year. The fight will be attended in the O2 Arena by many rap and hip hop fans of Marpo or Rytmus. A fight that breaks the habits of martial arts and raises the interest of people who have never been interested in this sport before. Fight night XFN 15 and a boxing fight between Czech and Slovak celebrity of the rap music is one of the best achievements of the XFN’s successful year. Nowadays, the whole Czechoslovakia talks about this fight between the Czech vice-champion in thaibox and a famous Czech rap star – Marpo against the Slovak star of the rap music – Rytmus, will now face each other.
Patrik “Rytmus” Vrbovský, who has been boxing for the last couple of years, looks forward to the fight against the Czech hip-hop star Marpo – alias Otakar Petřina, and says “I have had sharp sparring with people who have hard wounds. And I thought I was doing well and had to move it, to bring it on. It is a challenge. And I love challenges in my life”. Marpo, who previously fought as a Thai boxer and has nine fights on his record – of which six won. Saying “I have to shoot Rytmus down and I need to set it up in my head as a proper hunter”. Marpo, unlike Rytmus, hesitated with this fight: “I was very much looking forward to a fight against Saenchaeus, because he is a Thai number one or two, with 316 wins. I knew I probably could not win, but it would have been an honour to let someone like that to beat the shit out of me, so I was really hesitating a lot with the fight against Rytmus”. After all, the fight with Rytmus has been accepted and after Christmas, in the O2 Arena, they will measure each other’s strength and skills.
The fight between Marpo and Rytmus, by far, is not the only fight that the attendance can look forward to. After a nearly five-year break, the number one champion of Czech boxing, Lukáš Konečný, will fight once again and his opponent will be a Slovak fighter Matúš Bibiak, who has eight fights on his record, of which only one loss. “After nearly five years break, I do not want a world champion fighter, logically. I want myself to feel a little bit like the champion and not as an underdog, but on the other hand I can not lower myself and fight some dummy because I would devaluate the comeback and the event itself, “explains his attitude 40-year-old Lukáš Konečný, who has 50 wins including 23 K.O.´s. He lost only four times and every single time via split decision. „The surgeon“ as the European and the World champion has been always called, still has lots of skills to show to the world. After his retirement there has been quite a huge gap in Czech boxing.
