"On February 29 shortly after arriving in Chechnya, I was subjected to a randomly timed drug test by VADA (Voluntary Anti Doping Association),". "This was a test of blood and urine. The post fight test was a urine only test. I would like to again st[...]
"I wish to make it clear that I have at this stage no reason to take issue with the VADA testing of me in and around this fight,". "Given the result of the A sample I have no reason to believe that the B sample will provide any different results to [...]
Following that clean test I ate only at the hotel in which we were hosted and at the meal following the boxers' media weigh in. The water I drank on the night of the fight was sealed bottled water.
My teams' investigations will now concentrate on the period of time between the clean test on February 29 and the fight itself on March 5. I maintain that I did not knowingly consume any banned substance, including the Clenbuterol found in my system[...]
I now hold clear and unequivocal evidence that this test was a negative test and shows clearly that I arrived in Chechnya a clean athlete.
"I don't understand today's news, and I'm seeking legal advice,"
"I think it's funny how full of s*** @mrdavidhaye is. I'm not fighting him. Oquendo is next, it's all in the contract. It [a fight with Haye] ain't happening,"
"I'm so proud to have won this title for Australia. Obviously I can improve but I showed that my heart and power can never be questioned,". "I'm thrilled to have made history. It was a big step up, but I got the win and I thank everyone for the supp[...]
I've already started the process of turning my body into a machine and I'm going to destroy whatever is in front of me. Travelling overseas to fight doesn't bother me in the slightest. I've done it many times in my career and at the end of the day i[...]
"Make no mistake, I'm going over to Grozny to knock Ruslan Chagaev out. I'm not interested in leaving the fight in the hands of the judges so I'm going to bring my two judges with me, my left hand and my right hand.
I'm lighter now and I'm working on my footwork every day with Rodney so I think people are going to be surprised at how agile I've become. My power is still there, but I'm slipping better and I've learned that I don't need to stand directly in front[...]
"My camp has been unreal. We've been in the gym for over six weeks and there's still over seven weeks to go so people are going to get a shock when they see me in the ring,"
I've got the perfect team now and each day I'm learning new things. Rodney is the quiet one who provides a calming influence and concentrates on the pad work while Nigel is the loud one who shouts and gets me pumped up. He's the motivator and the ch[...]
"To me it's just a place I have to go to if I want to fulfil my dream of being a world champion,". "The crowd will be against me and I'm fine with that. I've been in hostile situations in my personal life so this holds no fear for me.
I am on the verge of becoming Australia's first ever heavyweight world champion and I cannot wait to win that in the near future.
"Holding the Commonwealth title was a huge honour for me and I do not relinquish the belt easily,". "However, I'm currently the mandatory challenger to Ruslan Chagaev's WBA heavyweight title and that is now my focus".
Even though there's no date set, I've begun training already and I'm really going the extra mile to make sure the WBA belt is mine.
I've got a great team around me. Guys like Ricky Hatton and Jeff Fenech, who know what it takes to become champion. I take in their advice and put it into action. I'm one of the most exciting heavyweights in the world. I don't like leaving it in th[...]
I'm happy to fight Chagaev anywhere but if it's in Australia I know it'll be huge. The public would love to see me knock him out to win the belt and I plan on doing exactly that.
My plan is to be beat Chagaev and then go after Wilder in a unification. Wilder did well to outbox Stiverne at the weekend, but let's be honest, Stiverne hadn't really beaten anyone himself other than Chris Arreola.
Although I give Wilder a lot of credit and congratulate him on the win, I still think there's a lot of questions to be answered and I honestly believe he'll be on the canvas sleeping if I connect with his chin.
"Jennings and Povetkin are doing other things so I'm next in line for a shot and I'm ready to fight him now. I'll take him on whenever he wants, wherever he wants". "I'm ready for any fighter in the world and I think is going to be the year when Aus[...]
