(JULY 6) HBN received the latest on
Timothy Bradley and Alfredo Angulo when they both attended a Media
workout yesterday at the Fortune Gym, in Hollywood, California.
The two are set to fight on July 17, 2010 at the Agua Caliente
Casino,/Resort/spa in Rancho Mirage, CA. The fight will be
televised on HBO "Boxing After Dark".
Training camp is going well. I feel strong. Ready to go. Ready for a
dominant opponent in Carlos Abregu.
I'm used to fighting big guys. I'm going to feel Abregu's power. In the
beginning, I am sure he will have heavy hands. Then I will take it from
I don't want to get hit by any heavy shots. For me to win this fight it
comes down to fighting smart and not getting over confident.
I trained to go 12 hard rounds. I'm not a knockout puncher but anything
can happen. A KO would be amazing.
Abregu is a dangerous fighter.
I am finally on the big scene now. I worked my way from the backyard to
a bigger audience.
These fights that I am fighting are meant to open up doors. Before it
was hard getting a fight at 140 pounds.
I want to fight the best fighters in the world. I understand that boxing
is a business so I know that I have to fight them all and I am willing.
I'll fight Devon Alexander, I'll fight Amir Khan, I'll fight Marcos
Maidana, I'll fight Victor Ortiz. I'll fight any guys.
Devon Alexander... That's a guy I want. He has made all kinds of false
accusations, saying I “feared him.” I'll go to St. Louis to fight him if
I have to. If it works with the business, let's make it happen.
I’ve got a promotional and management team, they know what's best.
I'd fight Pac Man or Floyd. If I can get into the ring with them I've
accomplished what I needed to in boxing.
Floyd Mayweather is the best fighter in the world and he could drug test
me all he wants. The only thing in me is my GOD-given talent. He can
test me all he wants.
I feel I am ready for a fight with Mayweather or Pacquaio.
Everybody's beatable. Everyone can be touched. Those four corners can
close in on you. Mayweather has big fight experiences as his advantage
and I have my youth.
Pac Man is a monster too. Both these fighters are the best. Pac Man's a
speedster. A fight against him would be fireworks.
They can take me out to the deep water, I'm ready. I’ve got a big will
to win. It's fun to talk about it but it would be a lot more fun to be
in the ring with either one of them.
My team has been pushing me and boosting me into the pound for pound
Bob Arum has excuses. My job is to continue to win. Boxing fans want to
see fights and I know that Pac Man or Mayweather will need dancing
partners and I'm waiting.
I was frustrated when the Maidana fight fell out so I checked with my
manager Cameron Dunkin and he said we would move to the original plan of
fighting Carlos Abregu.
I just want to win, As long as I get a victory, I’ve done my job.
Amir Khan is the most protected fighter at 140 pounds. He's a good
fighter. I don't know what he is afraid of.
For Abregu, I just need to keep my left hand up and stay smart.
Sometimes I let my heart get in the way and I get over aggressive. I
need to stay poised to win the fight. I need to stay smart and not get
I have a lot more energy. I don’t feel like I have been training for a
fight. I’m not tired. I'll have even more energy come fight night.
I feel strong at 147 pounds. I feel a little slower but a lot stronger
up at top. I feel like getting on the inside and fighting.
I normally walk around at 160-165 pounds. For fight night I will be at
no more than 150 – 151 pounds.
After focusing on this fight, I’ll see if I can get a good fight at
147...Berto, Maidana, possibly... But for now my focus is on Abregu.
I have kept up my same routine as I would with any fight. I'm working
hard. The only thing that has changed in training camp is I brought in
Daryl Hudson, my strength and conditioning coach.
With Daryl's training I feel great strength in my legs and arms. I'm
also much faster now.
I plan to pressure Alcine in the ring. I'm going to force him to fight.
Alcine runs in the ring but all fighters do.
I have kept up my training since my last fight.
I am able to eat what I would like because I train so hard.
Alcine is a great fighter. He has only one defeat and that was against a
After Alcine, I don't have a preference. I'll fight whoever can give me
a great fight.
Everyday when I am at the gym I try to learn and do something different.
The day a fighter says he knows it all is the day he is in trouble.
