The “Turkish Tyson” is not just a nickname, exactly like Mike Tyson, when you see him for the 1st time in front of one of the Giants’ fighters, you feel he is small for a heavyweight fighter, but when you see his powerful punches and kicks, you know that he has the ability to easily destroy any other bigger fighter.
In my opinion, Saki’s competitive advantage is not the hitting power, it’s the amazing speed in comparison to any other heavyweight fighter, as he can throw a lot of accurate punches in seconds, which easily can finish any fight.
Saki is not just a kickboxing champion; he’s two times European Mai Thai champion, and now an MMA fighter.
