- How important is for you is your upcoming fight?

- I will be fighting for WBO NABO Championship so it is super important for me. This will be a challenge for me but also a good opportunity to show myself. And hopefully when I will win the fight I will be in WBO rankings.

 - What can you say about your opponent?

His name is Anthony Russell. He was born in Canada but he resides in the USA. He had a lot of amateur fights, and has a professional record of won 16 (KO 5) + lost 2 (KO 1) + drawn 1. I saw couple of his fights, but I am not impressed. His foot work is relatively good and he has long hands. And all I can say now is that I am going to impose on him with my boxing style.

 - How are you preparing for this fight?

 - As always I am working with Sam Colonna, he is my boxing coach. Also I work out with Jerry Owen who is helping me in my conditioning trainings and Bo Maciejczykiem who is helping me with strength trainings.

 - Did you change anything in your training routines?

I didn’t really change anything because all those training and preparations were effective. So basically I am preparing the same way as always. As far as now I am working out more on technique and boxing trainings.

 - What are your plans after this fight?

Right now I am not thinking about the future. I am concentrating on my upcoming fight; this is the only thing that I can think of. So after I win this WBO NABO championship I will start paining future fights.

 - Is Andrzej Golota helping you as he did last time?

- (laugh) As I mentioned earlier Andrzej Golota is only giving me some advices, he is not my trainer as some people say. But I have to admit that his tips are very helpful! I would like to invite all of boxing fans to come for my next fight which will take place in UIC Pavilion on May 20th. This time I will be fighting for WBO NABO Championship.
