“Nikola is 1.96 meters tall, so he naturally belongs in the heavyweight division,” said coach Bülent Baser. “He is not, however, fully stuck there and can make the limit at cruiserweight.”

His talent is unquestioned. If he learns to put his training into practise in his coming years in the ring, he will go a good way in this tough business. I’d like to help him up the ladder.”
