Adam Azim vs Anthony Loffet: Press Conference Quotes
“People like entertainment and I bring entertainment. You’re going to see more explosive knockouts, you’re going to see more tricks that you haven’t seen before on Saturday night,” he said.
“This is definitely a great step up for me and I’ve been training really hard for this fight. I’m ready to go on Saturday and hopefully it will be the same outcome as my last four fights.”
“Whether my opponent’s come to box like Mayweather or fight like Tyson, I’ve done everything I can in the gym to make sure I get the win. Fingers crossed this can be the fight to push me onto very big things,” he said.
“I can’t wait to get going now. Day in, day out I get in the ring, I get punched and I punch people so I’m used to that kind of stuff. It’s all the little things outside of that that I need to get used to now. Like fighting in front of a big home audience, I’ve never really done that before.”
“I’ve got to be on my game. I’ve got to be sharp. I’m fit and I’m strong so that’s all going to show in the ring on Saturday night. But I can’t afford to drop a round, I’ve got to be on my game for the duration of the fight.”
“You’re going to see a lot more of me in this fight. I’m a lot better when I’m relaxed, and I was under pressure to win right away in the BOXXER Series. Now you’re going to see a more relaxed Cori Gibbs, and a better Cori Gibbs. All my skills, all my power, you’ll be able to see a lot more and I can’t wait.”
