“I’ve had 17 fights, 14 by KO. On the weekend, it’ll be 18 and 15 by KO. Everyone can say what they want about the opponent until after I’ve beaten them, and then we’ll be onto the next one, and we’ll see what everyone says about him.
“I think power is secondary. It’s more for fans and my opponents to watch and see what I’m doing. In the ring, as I’m going to show on Sunday, there are so many other things that I do that are overlooked. It all ends in a KO, which is why people care about the power.
“Nothing else has mattered since the fight got signed. It’s up to be to wipe the smile off his [Cieslak] face and all of his Polish teammates on Sunday.
“It’s a must. 100% ends in a KO. 1 million percent.”
“To be honest, I don’t care what other people think like media or supporters. I’m focused on myself and on what I’m going to do Sunday.
“I am aware that there will be a lot of supporters from my city of Radom and other places around Poland. I can’t wait to fight in this bout.
“Today, I’m focusing on myself, so I’m not interested in how hard he punches and how strong he is, I’m going to do what I have to on Sunday, and I’ll be celebrating then.”
