I have no clue what is going through devin’s mind.
I don’t really care.
I have huge respect for him for taking this fight and won’t underestimate him for him to come in here and accept this fight on five weeks.
Notice is already winning for him.
It’S hard to trash talk, someone that accepts the fight with five weeks to go.
So i like him, but i’ll, beat his ass i’ll, probably break his nose.
So i’m sorry, but that’s just my job, um retorts, uh, larret and a satisfactory outcome is something i can walk away from, knowing that my heart and spirit was properly expressed.
If i can walk in and feel like at the end of the fight i fought bravely, i was able to hold on to what i learned over the last four weeks i’ll be happy, but i want a battle scar.
I feel that would be a terrible thing.
Not to walk away with for the first two minutes, who knows what i’m capable of i feel like? I got dropped in the middle of the jungle and i’m fighting my way through it.
This is a massive step into the unknown and every time i’ve spurred they’ve made it harder and harder, but i’m no stranger to competition and i fought in all sorts of different sports.
I have massive appreciation for the boxing game.
They are ridiculously high level athletes.
Thor has more experience, but i know, as you need in a fight in is one shot, so i’m ready for it.
Thor’S nose will blow up if he breaks my nose i’ll give him 500.
But if i break his nose i want five thousand dollars from him.

Local promoter dennis derek gianta is on a mission to help bring pittsburgh back to close to its past glory days in which great fighters were developed there, such as hall of famers harry the pittsburgh windmill, greb and billy the pittsburgh kid khan, as well as world champions.
Michael moore and more recently, paul spadafora, he says pittsburgh can certainly get back to being a true boxing town.
We have already seen a recent revival in sport here.
The keys have enough shows to keep fighters busy, so they can develop and eventually move on to bigger stages.
Maybe some of the bigger events can take place here as enough fighters develop i’d like to remain active, promoting shows here and in neighboring cities with some people that we already have good relationship with.
I want to continue building up fighters here anyway, pittsburgh junior lightweight matt, sweet child conway, who’s 19 and two with eight knockouts.

Once again, speaking of once again, i’m going to end this segment with a few words from our favorite fighter, tyson fury who’s going up against deontay wilder.
As we all know here we go here’s the story.
We all know they’re going up against each other in the t-mobile arena in las vegas uh world boxing council heavyweight champion tyson fury guarantees that he will knock out deontay wilder who’s 42-1-1 with 41 knockouts.
I might add, in an even more devastating way than last time.
He says when the two met when the two meet on october 9th at the t-mobile arena fury commented this time, i’m gon na erase him completely.
It’S not gon na be seven rounds.
This time, i’m going to beat him quickly.
He was the biggest punter in history, but i knocked him out now: i’m the biggest and hardest puncher.
He is only a threat in someone’s nightmares, but not in mine.
I think he will go into the fight excited, but after one round he will realize that he’s back where he started wilder won’t be able to defeat me, i’m going to knock him all over again.
I hope he keeps that up as we get closer to that event.
I look forward to his comments every time i see his name in the headlines and that’s it for today.
