Mayfield: Herrera Won, I'll Beat The Brakes off Garcia

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Top Rank's undefeated Super Lightweight contender, Karim "Hard Hitta" Mayfield (18-0-1, 11 KOs), talks about his training camp with Virgil Hunter, his upcoming bout against Puerto Rico's rising star Thomas Dulorme (20-1, 18 KOs), fighting on HBO for the second time in his career and the Garcia vs. Herrera outcome.

Mayfield vs. Dulorme, 10-round bout for the NABF Super Lightweight title, will take place in Atlantic City, New Jersey Saturday, March 29 on the undercard of Sergey Kovalev (23-0-1, 21 KOs) vs. Cedric Agnew (26-0, 13 KOs). Both fights will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark® beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Mayfield on training with Virgil Hunter...

"Virgil and I have been working together since I was in the amateurs.  He knows how to push me to bring out the best in my fighting style.  Ben Bautista is also helping out.  Virgil has some of the best fighters in the world working out at his gym so I'm getting the best sparring possible.  Virgil has got me working on some new punches that I'll display against Dulorme.  Together I have a great corner guiding me to the top. Training camp is going great."

Mayfield on his fight against top rated contender Thomas Dulorme...

"Dulorme is a technical guy with a long jab who has some fast hands.  He's nothing special though.  I've seen him get knocked out before so I know his chin is suspect. I've fought guys who are long and rangy just like him so I'm confident in my ability to land some powerful shots.  If I touch that chin of his, there's no doubt, he's getting knocked out."

Mayfield comments on the Danny Garcia vs. Mauricio Herrera outcome...

"I thought Herrera pulled off the victory against Garcia because he landed more punches and was the aggressor for most of the fight.  The fact that I dominated Herrera and he got the world title opportunity means there's something wrong.  I've been calling Danny Garcia out for the last couple of years but he's been running from me because I put it on him when he brought me in camp. I'll beat the breaks off Garcia if we ever fight.  First I have to take care of Dulorme and that is where my 100% focus is right now."

Mayfield comments on fighting on HBO for the second time...

"I'm very excited to be fighting on HBO again.  This is a big opportunity to prove I'm one of the top fighters in the division.  This is the type of fight the fans are seeking, two guys at the top of their game who are hungry to prove their great.  I want to thank my promoter Bob Arum, Top Rank and HBO for giving another shot to showcase my talent on a global network."
