Manfredo/Muller Presser Quotes
10.5.07 - Peter Manfredo, Jr.: It's all good. I'm a throwback, old school fighter. I watched Ted and he brings it. I like that and that's why we picked him. I'm prepared. My father (trainer Peter, Sr.) has been torturing me. I'm going to be thinking of him when I punch you (Muller). Unfortunately, in my last fight I didn't get a chance to fight. Now I have to show that I belong at that level. First, I have to get past Ted. In England, nobody liked me, it was weird. I like being here with all those smiling faces. ."
