Maddalone/Holyfield: Vinny Maddalone Training Camp Notes

12.03.07 - On Training: “Al Certo and I have been training very hard for this fight. At the crack of dawn, he has me out in the snow doing my roadwork. My sparring has been intense with some of the best guys we could find. They are preparing me for everything that Holyfield will throw at me.” “Evander Holyfield is a smart fighter. He has a strong inside game. Al Certo and I have designed a strategy where we will punish him for being in my range.”

On Holyfield:

“I am not Fres Oquendo or Jermey Bates. I will take the fight to him. I have never taken a backward step in my entire career. I come to fight.”
“He is a well conditioned athlete and I am prepared RIGHT NOW to go the distance. This will be the fight of my life and I do not plan on coming out the loser.”

“Holyfield is a throwback fighter from the days of Marciano, Frazier and Dempsey. My trainer, Al Certo, is a throwback himself. He has seen the greats first hand and worked with them. He knows how to beat them. Holyfield might have toughness and guts, but when he faces me, he will find out that he has met his match!”
