“I can’t wait for the fight on Saturday. Camp’s been tough but all the hard work’s done now, now’s the easy bit. – the fight. It’s not long now, it’s only three days away. I’ve come over here to win. I’m prepared for whatever he [Pulev] throws at me, and if I have to go the distance to do that so be it. Believe me when I say it’s going to be one hell of a fight.

“Camp has gone well and I’m well prepared. I’m in a concentrated place. I believe my years of experience has led me to this day where I have the maturity to manage fights to the end. I work very hard and this is what I’ve been doing the last three months with my coach and team. I have developed my strength this past year, not just physically but also mentally. I’m in the best shape I can.

Peter Fury:

”I watched the trailer video for this fight and saw Pulev as a young boy coming through the ranks and it’s the same story with our family. These men are warrior of this sport. I don’t like trash talking because I respect all fighters particularly ones at this level. These are fighting men and may the best man win.


“I want my son to face the best boxers. He’ll fight the best fighters anywhere on the planet because what I see today is plastic fighters in positions they shouldn’t be in because they don’t take proper challenges. My son will out it all on the line, believe me. He is a fighting man and has more heart than anyone.

Savannah Marshall:

“This is a great match up for me and for the travelling fans. Like me, she [Yanina] is my opponent is unbeaten so I’m excited to get out there, give it all I’ve got and get the win. I’m fighting for a belt so there’s a lot at stake.

“I’ve been in camp now for 14 weeks which has felt like a long time. But I’m looking forward to finally getting in the ring and showing what I’ve learnt in that time. All the training will be worth it.”


Yanine Orozco:

“I don’t know too much about Savannah but that doesn’t concern me. I’ve spent the time in the gym and I’m well prepared. On Saturday night you will see what I’m all about.”

Pulev in best shape of his life and Hughie still looks like a weakling, guess he will have his track shoes on again but I actually quite enjoy watching him , he's got some skills. Please Peter Fury send him…

It will be about security first for Hughie.

Fury has tied his running boots already

I want to know who’s been contracted to do PED testing in this fight if Fists of Fluff Furry is doing VADA he’ll no doubt have issues with his stamina and conditioning again.

[QUOTE=scarybodyshot;19219681]I want Pulev to win but I think it will end up being a controversial draw.[/QUOTE] The only way we get a controversial draw is if fury completely outboxes him
