“This fight has been coming for a long time. The date has changed many times. I’ve had many training camps.
“I hope everything is good tomorrow with the weight. I need to win this fight. This is my work. I give everything to win this fight.
“I’m going to give 100% to take the win. After the fight, I will go home to see my children and my family.
“This is a must-win fight for me. It’s a big fight. English, Russian and Spanish fans have been messaging me.
“On Saturday night, we’re going to show a good fight. I’m going to give everything to win this fight.”
“I’ve got great respect for David, and I’ll echo what he said, family and health is the most important thing. We’ve got to get a job done on Saturday.
“It’s my main aim in 2021 to start with this European Title. I’ve stepped up to levels that I couldn’t even imagine I could do in the gym. I thought last time I was ready, but COVID came, and it got canceled. I was nowhere near ready compared to what I am now. All I need to do is go and put on a show on Saturday.
“I’ve done a lot of talking this week, and I feel like I’ve expressed myself fully on what I believe will happen. We’ve just got to dance on Saturday.
“I think David is a strong capable fighter. I believe that I’m a big Welterweight, and I’m strong.
“I’m a very strong Welterweight. Saturday night is going to be a night for everyone to enjoy, I think. Now it’s time to quiet down, focus in, and get the job done.”
