Godfrey ready for Hawk!

NABF and SNBC cruiserweight titleholder Matt “Too Smooth” Godfrey (18-1, 10 KOs) is set to face unbeaten Shawn Hawk (18-0-1, 16 KOs) in the ten round main event on this week’s ESPN2 Friday Night Fights show from The Arena in Philadelphia. Godfrey was originally planning to challenge IBF world champion Tomasz Adamek this weekend, but that fight fell through when no network picked it up. “I’m preparing for Hawk as if I were fighting Adamek,” the WBC #6/IBF #7 rated Godfrey said during a break from a recent workout. “This is a very important fight because I have another opportunity to showcase my skills on live national television. Fights fall through… That’s boxing. I can’t do anything about it and all I can do is keep focused on this fight. I don’t know too much about Hawk other than I know I’m going to beat him. He doesn’t bring anything that strikes fear in me – nobody does! He’s heavy handed and he doesn’t know how to lose. Those are his two best assets. I’m not worried but I’m still taking him seriously.”
