Dib on Facing Adrien Broner: I Would Beat His Ass!

By BoxingBet.pl

In 2012, the IBF featherweight champion Billy Dib (35-1, 21 KOs) defended his title twice, beating Eduardo Escobedo and Juan Antonio Rodriguez. Besides, the Sydney-based fighter signed a contract with 50 Cent’s promotional company which can help advance his career and get more lucrative offers in 2013. The Australian “Kid” says that he doesn’t exclude a higher division move and he’s keen to face WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner.

Q: Hello Billy, how are you going?

A: I’m well. Always in training and I’m always in shape. I’m a professional boxer. I train every day and I’m dedicated to my sport.

Q: Your last fight took place in July when you defeated Juan Antonio Rodriguez. How can you evaluate your performance?

A: It wasn’t my best performance. In saying that, Rodriguez was tough, determined and awkward. But I got the job done and walked away with the all important “W”.

Q: What are your plans for next year? A few months ago there were rumors, that you joined 50 Cent's company TMT, now SMS Promotions. Tell us a bit about it.

A: No rumor. I’m joined to 50’s stable SMS Promotions and its’ exciting. 50’s got unbelievable plans for me and I truly believe he can add so much value to boxing in general.

Q: You got the IBF featherweight title in 2011. Have you ever thought about unification since then?

A: Of course. I want to be an undisputed world champ, no doubt. But at this level it’s not easy making them fights. Unfortunately. I’ll keep pushing for them.

Q: You're definitely a top fighter in your division. What you think about potential fights against guys such as Orlando Salido or Chris John?

A: It would be awesome to get an opportunity at those guys, especially John, who has been at the top for so long. It would be awesome to get an opportunity at those guys especially John who has been at the top for so long. I also hear that Nonito Donaire wants to campaign at featherweight in 2013. To me that would be a challenge that I would love to take. He’s one the best boxers out there and I would be happy to put my belt on the line for him.

Q: You are the world champion, but it seems you’re not widely-known. Do you feel a bit unappreciated?

A: More recognition would be nice, but my focus is to keep winning and keep pushing for the big fights. The more success I have the more recognition I will receive. It’s up to me.

Q: Over a year ago you won a world title. What's your biggest boxing dream now?

A: To keep improving and to keep winning. I know how determined I was to win a world title and I can just imagine what my opponents would do to take what I got. As they say, it’s easier getting to the top than remaining at the top.

Q: Have you ever considered a move to a higher division?

A: If it makes dollars, it makes sense to me. I would love an opportunity at Adrien Broner. I would be more than happy to go up a division to make that fight happen. He’s come out to say he’s wanted to face me and I accepted the challenge then he vanished which is disappointing. That’s what frustrates you about this sport. Too many fighters talk a lot of sh**. Don’t say you would fight me if you don’t have the intention to fight me. I know his bosses would never allow Broner to face me. I will beat his ass.

Q: How was your nickname "The Kid" created?

A: A sponsor of mine suggested the name, so I ran with it.

Q: What caused you started to train boxing?

A: My love for the sport started at a young age, once I started I never looked back.

Q: You had a motorcycle accident before 2004 Olympics. Do you regret, that you couldn't go to the Olympics?

A: I have no regrets! Everything in life happens for a reason. It was a reckless mistake from me.

Q: After missing out the Olympics, you had travelled to Sheffield with Prince Naseem Hamed and he encouraged you to turn professional. What made you decide to listen him and turn pro?

A: He was one of the best to do it he recognized my talent, he advised me and I never looked back.

Q: Any closing thoughts for boxing fans?

A: You haven’t seen the best of Billy Dib. I truly believe I’m the most exciting boxer in my division right now. So stay tuned and see it for yourself!
