PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES

Robin Krasniqi: "I have the maximum respect for Arthur, a big name who has achieved everything. But in the ring, there can only be one winner. I've trained long and hard for my dream to become world champion. As always, I've been diligent and disciplined. Everything I've done in the last six months I'm going to show on Saturday. The reward is a clear victory and the chance to win a world championship fight!"

Arthur Abraham: "I'm a person who doesn't speak so much, I let actions speak. I'll show you in the ring how we have trained. I'm going to win and fight for the championship. After that, a few title defenses. But we are now focusing on this fight. Both boxers have a good level. The fans can look forward to it. No matter who is in front of me, they must be beaten...in the ring there is just one thing. I want to win and I will win!"

 
Providing chief support in the 10-round co-feature is an interesting match for the vacant WBO Inter-Continental Heavyweight Championship between undefeated prospect Tom Schwarz (18-0, 11 KOs), the WBO Youth champion, and Adnan "Bosnian Lion" Redzovic (17-1, 6 KOs).
 
In a battle of unbeaten light heavyweight prospects, Adam Deines (10-0-1, 5 KOs) faces Lukasz Golebiewski (8-0, 5 KOs) in a 10-round bout on the undercard..
 
Additional fights or highlights may be shown, time permitting.

Crap fight between a washed-up ex-paper belt holder and a bum who keeps getting title fights even though he's never beaten anyone with a pulse and loses every round of said title fights. WTF would pay $25 to watch this?
