HASSAN N'DAM:

"Hello to everyone. Its 2 days before my fight and I feel very good. It's the first time for me seeing so many people for the press conference and I hope it will be the same for the fight because you’re going to enjoy a great fight. I want to thank the people who support me. I want to thank my promoter Sebastian Acarias who has done everything to make the fight happen. I want to thank my team, Pedro Diaz and Oswaldo who helped me throughout training camp. I want to thank all my family, all my friends and my sparring partners who helped me to be great today. So I feel very good and lets see whats gonna happen Saturday”

“This will be my 7th world title fight. It will be a great fight for me because I know what to expect. Murata was an Olympic champion but he needs to prove to me that he can stand with me. I think you are very prepared for this fight so I hope to have a great fight with you”

“My nickname is “El fenomeno” that means “I am the showman” The fight is going to be a show. I’m gonna be ready for that fight. I think Murata is going to be ready too. It’s going to be a great fight but I’ve already fought the best boxers in the world and I know this game. I’ve been in this business a long time. So lets see this Saturday whats gonna happen, but I think I’m going to win.”

“Be ready for Saturday because you’re going to get a great fight. You (Murata) have 12 fights with other fighters but right now you are facing Hassan N’dam, it will be more difficult for you”

Never a dull fight with N'Dam around – always liked the guy since his war against Quillin. Hope someone caps this.
