The two former MP’s spar inside Mirko Cro Cop’s basement octagon. Franjo Arapovic is the perfect sparing partner for Cro Cop as he prepares to battle Hong Man Choi. Arapovic is a former Croatian basketball star winning silver medals at both the 1992 and 1988 Olympics with Croatia and Yugoslavia.

“Franjo is the tallest man I know. Only three centimeters shorter and ten kilo grams lighter than my opponent. I‘m able to simulate Choi’s height and feel his weight” said Cro Cop.

Arapovic is 215 cm tall and weighs approximately 140 kg with Hong Man Chois weight fluctuating between 150 and 160 kg.

Cro Cop goes for an arm bar.

Reaching Choi's head wont be a problem according to Arapovic.
