Kvyat is somewhat of a boxing enthusiast himself and trains regularly to keep himself fit. He has previously trained with Conor McGregor at ‘The Forge’. After training with ‘Notorious’ he definitely satisfied his itch for boxing. After the training session, he also spoke about who he would like to train with next.

“I met Conor personally and I can say that he is a very interesting character. I hope that one day I will also meet Khabib. I want to learn how to fight. Why not take a lesson from him? I wish I could. I really respect people who are engaged in boxing and MMA at a high level.” Kvyat said.
