“I am so focused on winning the world title that I am sacrificing everything.

“Yesterday was Thanksgiving day and, for the first time in my life, I had to give up having dinner with my family so that I can train instead.  I started the day with a 5K run and finished it by going to war with my sparring partners.  I’m ruining my Thanksgiving so that I can ruin Vitali Klitschko’s Christmas.  My team and I are focused and are ready to get this fight over with.

“I spoke to a friend who is serving in Afghanistan this morning, so I want to take some time to say thank you to all the brave men and women fighting around the world for our freedom.  They are the real champions, so I will dedicate my victory over Vitali to our US Armed Forces.”
