It is difficult to foresee with so much going on in October, but it will be clearer moving forward when watching the Top 8 Match between Saginashvilli and Latin in December. With this match, I think we might also see a matchup between Latin and Cyplenkov. This will all happen by December, so hopefully, we can gain clarity about what’s happening during that month.
It appears as though Cyplenkov is still trying to make up for the strength that he lost over the years and is competing against the world’s strongest arm wrestlers. While he may now be older, Levan is a young dynamo who has strong motivation to beat Cyplenkov.
As the December Competition shows, whether or not Levan is strong enough to stay with Cyplenkov.
