He got schooled it's a simple as that. I was a level above him, I was a step ahead of him.
I've had a few good holidays since then and took some time out of the gym as I knew that this date was coming, the loss to George did take a lot out of me though. When I lost to George the goal of becoming World champion slipped away a bit but the d[...]
I'd been training for the whole year basically so that with the illness took a lot out of me, I didn't do anything in the first half of the fight but I still nearly pulled it out of the bag at the end. I wasn't expecting to lose so when I did, it to[...]
I am far from done as a fighter, it's just not worked out right for me. When we do nail it, we know that the wins against the big names will be there. I'm not making any excuses or crying over spilt milk but it just didn't work out for me at Middlew[...]
"Four weeks before I boxed George I was flying in the gym,". "If I'd fought him then the outcome would have been completely different. I peaked and then I got ill, I took a couple of courses of antibiotics leading into the fight, so when I fought th[...]
I need a win that puts me right back into the mix to fight for a Word title and hopefully this fight will be that win. I would move down to Middleweight if I could get the right fights but I just can't seem to get them and there are fights coming at[...]
"I train for fights to go all the way and take my opponents into deep waters,". "I've shown that I have got a good engine and can sustain a good work rate over 12 rounds. George has stamina issues, that's well known, the fight favours me late on wit[...]
He was clinically beaten by Carl Froch and those defeats took a lot out of him. He hasn't had a fight that hard since and on June 25 he's going to be in a real fight. When it gets hard for him, psychologically it's going to be tough. I will break hi[...]
I have one of the best defences in world boxing, I've been in with better fighters than George who have not been able to get rid of me and I am that confident in this fight that the only way he can beat me is if I lose concentration and get caught w[...]
"This is a fight I've wanted for a while and I'm delighted it's made,". "I've had some huge profile fights all over the world in Golovkin, Martinez and Abraham but never had the big one in the UK. This is a fight that British fight fans can really g[...]
"He did well, controlled the fight with his jab. There wasn't much coming back from Di Luisa, but he did well. He's got a great jab. You can't really judge him on that performance because there wasn't much coming back,"
He looked good. It's hard to see what he's got from it though, he did everything he needed to do.
"There's no point in us just fighting for the sake of fighting, there needs to be something there,". "I am a world-class fighter and people have only given me a chance when they think they can beat me, in their own country with their officials".
I don't think I'll get champions, or people like George, offering me fights just for the sake of it. I'd love the fight, as I would with any domestic fight. Paul Smith, Callum Smith, James DeGale – all of them.
"If you want to beat Golovkin you've got to stay in the centre of the ring and push him back. The thing about him, he's a good all-rounder. Everything he does, he does well and does world class. That's what makes him special. Like I said what surpri[...]
"He's just good at everything. Obviously he punches hard. He takes a shot well. He's quite sneaky defensively as well but what surprised me most about Golovkin was the variety of his shots. The way he opened me up. We worked a lot on his left hook t[...]
I remember being in close with him and then he's hit me with a left uppercut, ripped my nose right back and I thought, 'Bastard.' It was when my nose went. I was thinking, 'He's going to go to the body now, left hook to the body.' But he hit me with[...]
"He hits hard, the hardest I've ever been hit, but I was expecting more. I don't know if that was because how anticipated he was, because I was thinking all kinds leading up to this fight, mentally preparing myself for torture. Which it was to be fa[...]
The way I feel in the gym at the minute at the new weight is unbelievable. I've had a week off since the beginning of May and the strength conditioning I've been doing has been superb.
I'm with the best promoter in Matchroom and the biggest boxing platform in Sky Sports – big things are on the horizon for me.
"I really I want the Arthur Abraham fight,". "Eddie Hearn was with the Sauerlands last week, so hopefully it gets made. I doubt he would give me a voluntary defence as I'm too dangerous – so I would have to go down the route of becoming mandatory ch[...]
I'm not picky over which of these guys I fight - I want them all. Jose Torres is tough and I'm too experienced to overlook him. I need to go in there and do the business.
"I've said I'd only move back down to middleweight for the right fights, and I mean financially". "Early last year Felix Sturm offered me a rematch but the money was even worse than the first time round and so were the terms. I've got to think about[...]
"Being away from my family has absolutely killed me,"
