Quotes from CA Media Lunch

Czar Glazkov

“Preparation is going very good. Training is two to three times a day. I can’t predict what is going to happen. I think Steve Cunningham is going to be 100% ready. I am preparing very seriously for every single fight. Every single fight gives me more experience. And every single fight gives me something new to work on. This is boxing and I don’t like to predict things. Right now it is 100% concentration on Steve Cunningham. I don’t know what is going to happen after this fight. I don’t care who I face next.”

Chilemba expects to KO Bellew on Saturday night

bellew5#3 WBC light heavyweight contender Isaac Chilemba (20-1-2, 9 KO’s) wants to take the judges out of the equation this Saturday night in his rematch against #1 WBC Tony Bellew (19-1-1, 12 KO’s) at the O2 Arena in London, UK.

Chilemba fought well enough to deserve a victory last March when he fought Bellew in Liverpool, England, but the judges saw it differently and scored it a 12 round draw. This time Chilemba will be looking to knock Bellew out.

Chilemba said to Sky Sports “I’m not a guy who looks for a knockout. The way I feel this time, I would be very surprised if he goes 12 rounds…this time I’m going to take every round.”

What’s not known by many boxing fans is that Chilemba went into his fight with Bellew last March with a chest cold, and he barely breath. He didn’t want to cancel the fight and toughed it out, giving away many of the rounds in the first half of the fight.
