“It’s every fighter’s dream to box in the main event on pay per view. It goes to show you it doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from – just work hard and follow your dreams.

“I am expecting to become a three time world champion on July 23. This is the fight everyone wants to see. The difference between me and Postol are my smarts. I can adapt to any style. If I get a chance to go for the kill I will take out Postol. I am looking to make a statement.”


“Crawford has never fought anyone like me. Wait until he feels my power. I have watched video tapes of him and as long as I follow the game plan I will be ok. I am not going to allow him to get any advantages when we are in the ring
“According to Boxrec in the world ratings he is ranked No. 1 and I am number 2 so whoever is the best in the world
“My wife Olga is due for twin baby boys at the end of July. When I go home to Kiev it is my obligation to go home with a title belt for each baby. That drives me to win this fight.”
