Devon also talks about the new format of WAL, which will be tested at WAL Chicago – 23 August 2014. In this new tournament format if you ever duck / lay down, or lose a match you will fight for 3rd and 4th place. There will be 2 pools which will gonna be seeded, the brackets will be seeded by Josh Handeland. The 2 pools will be played in the standard double elimination tournament in which you will progress until you got into the semifinal. There you will get 2 guys that are undefeated in each pool on the – A side, and they will have a supermatch from which it will be determined the 1st and the 2nd place. The armwrestlers from each pool who lost a match but they got to the semifinal in – B side, they will have a supermatch for the 3rd and 4th place.
Devon Larratt talks about his right arm. His right arm is stronger now than he was at WAL Las Vegas, but Devon expects it will be 2 more years until before he can say he is 100%, and he will not remember having surgery. But he is now fully willing to commit 100% to armwrestling as hard as he can in a tournament or in a supermatch, he is past the point where he fears re-injuring himself. He still has some spots where he is not fully comfortable and balanced, but he will get there and it will come a day when he will be again the best armwrestler in the world right handed.
Next Devon talks about VIDEO: Devon Larratt vs. Christian Binnie, +226 lbs LEFT FINAL │ WAL Las Vegas. He considers Christian Binnie 3rd top armwrestler in North America after him and Travis Bagent.
Craig Soubliere asked Devon about his decision to enter the 225 lbs class at WAL Chicago – 23 August 2014. Devon explains that for the last 15 years he ate as much as he could all the time, because he wanted to be as massive and strong as possible. He ate even more before a tournament, he wanted to stop, but he pushed himself. He normally weighs 235 lbs, and after WAL Las Vegas he started eating but not to a point where his guts are ripping apart. Devon made a joke about his wife Jodi Wood Larratt having a thing for Alexey Voevoda, because she started to eat raw food and no meat like him. 🙂
Devon still eats meat when he goes out, but in the house they eat raw vegetables all the time, and the weight flew out of him. During this interview Devon said he is already 225 lbs and he noticed no impact on the strength.
