VYACHESLAV "LION-HEART CHINGONSKYY" SHABRANSKYY, Light Heavyweight Contender:

"I'm very excited to be back to the ring. I prepped for this. I trained hard. I feel good.
I always try to do something new. I want to bring more power. Training camp, it's the best. Everything's so good. I feel like I'm ready. I don't really know a lot about [Todd Unthank-May]. He's a really dangerous opponent. It's going to be a tough fight."
