Bellator 284’s Steve Mowry: Moldavsky is “Toughest Opponent I’ve Ever Had”

Sioux Falls SD – Undefeated Bellator heavyweight Steve Mowry gets a big fight at Bellator 284 on Friday night when he faces former title challenger Valentin Moldavsky.

Mowry (10-0) faces an opponent from the famed Fedor Team.

“They’re all very nice, very stoic. They come hard. They come fast they’re well-rounded. It’s going to be a great challenge and I’m looking forward to meeting it,” Mowry told Cageside Press among other media on Wednesday.

One of Mowry’s teammates, Bellator heavyweight Linton Vassell, faced Moldavsky in March 2019. He became an important asset during Mowry’s training camp.

“In the sense that he was able to give me a good push, he was able to show me different things, help me out in different positions, he was huge. Linton’s a good friend and a good teammate. Whether he has direct influence on the training for the actual matchup or it’s just a thing where we’re in the gym pushing each other making each other better…Linton’s phenomenal. Very grateful for him,” Morwy said.

With Moldavsky currently ranked #1 in the Bellator heavyweight rankings he immediately becomes the biggest fight of Mowry’s career.

“He is far and away the toughest opponent I’ve ever had. He’s a guy that’s been there he’s done that. He’s fought the best guys. He’s very skilled. He’s has a skillset that a lot of people just haven’t been able to get around. Really looking forward to going in there and figuring him out,” said Mowry.
