About Eddie Chambers:

“Eddie Chambers is the best American heavyweight boxer right now. He is much stronger than David Haye. He is definitely the fastest heavyweight in the Top 10 of the ratings, therefore I will not underestimate him.”

About his preparation:

“My preparation is going very well so far. I already have more than 80 rounds of sparring and am in very good shape. I will keep on training very hard in the next 2 weeks and will especially work on my speed.”

About the fight in the soccer stadium in Düsseldorf, Germany, in front of 51,000 people:

“I am looking forward to fighting in a big arena again. I had this experience last year in Schalke in front of 61,000 spectators. The Esprit arena is fantastic, I attended a soccer game there recently and I can tell you the fans are also great. I cannot wait to step in the ring again.”

About future fights:

“I do not think about future fights right now. I have a very hard and difficult fight before me and my full concentration is on beating Eddie Chambers.”
