However, I will tell you that it is not very easy to find an opponent for him, because Fedor is a serious fighter, and no one wants to fight him. Therefore, it is difficult for him to find an opponent. In general, yes, we want to find an opponent for him, the victory over which will allow him to rise in the rating. But we are not in a hurry with its promotion. After all, Fedor is still young, he has enough time. We are advancing it step by step. I think Fedor needs a few more fights, and he will reach a higher level, ”the functionary said.
