When I land right hands on people's jaws like that they get flattened, especially if your punch resistance isn't renowned for being the best, which George Groves' isn't, unfortunately for him. I'm so happy. It was probably the best right hand that I[...]
If the referee let it carry on in the first fight, that would have been the result. They found out. I did promise a conclusive finish and they got it.
I was very pleased with my performance from start to finish. At times I switched off for a couple of seconds, which is human nature given the magnitude of the event, the scale of the whole build-up and the animosity between George Groves and I. Ther[...]
"But I'm building a house, taking my kids to nice schools, going on lovely holidays. I'm in a really good place. I'm loving retirement. Nothing would get me back in that ring at all,"
I ducked Golovkin.
Gennady Golovkin is a small middleweight, I'm a big super-middleweight. The fight was maybe talked about a year after I retired and it was never going to happen. Golovkin cannot win a fight against me, he's not big enough. You can't talk about Golov[...]
"The Golovkin thing came up and I said 'fight me at 172lbs and I'll think about it' and he wanted me to go down to 166, he wouldn't even come up to super-middle and I was already retired by that point,"
If he thinks he can beat me, he's not from planet Earth. He's a very good fighter, but who has he beaten?
The more I look at it, the closer I think the fight is. It's an exciting fight – whether you think Brook will get knocked out or not, you still want to watch it.
Look at Golovkin's CV, there's no one on there. In terms of talent, Brook will be the best fighter he's fought. Golovkin's dangerous, a big puncher and he knocked out [Lucian] Bute in the amateurs so he can fight, but don't be surprised if Brook giv[...]
He should pick on someone his own size, and if he can't get fights at middle, why doesn't he move up? He gave Canelo [Alvarez] stick for fighting [Amir] Khan, who was smaller.
"When I sparred Kell, he was so difficult to hit. Don't get me wrong, I could have leaned on him and put my weight on him but when I was sparring lighter fighters I tried to use my skill, rather than my weight,". "I couldn't out-skill him, and I was[...]
Golovkin will probably push him back, lean on him and use the weight advantage but, at the minute, there doesn't seem to be one. Obviously there will be one, but at the check weigh in Brook was heavy and looked in good shape.
"I genuinely think Brook will give him far more trouble than anyone has done before and more than anyone is giving him credit for,". "I think that because I've sparred Brook, he's skilful, and I didn't realise how much he struggled to get to 147lbs.[...]
"If I boxed again, and it's a big if, it would have to be at light-heavyweight or a catchweight,"
If DeGale wants to meet me at 173lbs I'll give him a pasting as well.
If I came back it would be at light-heavyweight.
If you asked me about Andre Ward, I'd say I wouldn't fight him. I'd probably lose on points. I'm just being honest. I think Gennady Golovkin is a really tough fight that I could win but it could go horribly wrong.
I think I'm too big for him though, he's quite small and I've got too much range. It's not like he doesn't get hit, and can he take my shots for 12 rounds? I'm not so sure. It would be great to find out.
"I'm incredibly proud of what I have achieved in boxing but now is the right moment to hang up my gloves. I have nothing left to prove and my legacy speaks for itself. Sky Sports is the home of boxing and has followed me throughout my career. I ca[...]
That's no disrespect to Amir Khan, but when he steps up he gets beaten. People think I'm having a go at him, but I'm not.
I don't think for one minute I would lose against Hopkins. It would be a great fight and a fight I would win in style.
He is coming off the back of a loss, but he is still a fighting force to be reckoned with and a dangerous opponent.
But it is not particularly a fight I get too excited about.
"Because he is 50 and a legend I don't want want to fight him because it is almost a lose-lose situation,". "I am expected to beat him. If I win people will say 'he beat a 50-year-old man'. If I lose people would say 'what's going on? You've ruined [...]
James is a great fighter and I hope he can go out and win that title and who knows, we may even meet later in the year.
"It's been a frustrating couple of weeks with terms agreed for the Chavez fight only for me to be unable to proceed in camp due to injury,". "I know what it's like to wait for a shot and I didn't want to hold James up in fighting for a World title.
"I'm disappointed to have to let this opportunity go but at this stage in my career I have to make every fight count,". "I will get some treatment and then we will look to make this fight or another big fight in the early summer.".
"McIlroy has had such a good year and there's Lewis Hamilton, those two,". "If you look at my [whole] career maybe I'd be okay but if you're looking at my year I've had one fight [stopping George Groves]. I know I've crossed over and it was massive [...]
"It doesn't have to be against Chavez, it can be against someone who takes me to Vegas – that could mean James DeGale – but I want to fight in Las Vegas because it's the fight capital of the world, all my heroes have boxed there and it's something I[...]
"I want the fight in Vegas,"
