“I’m going to dominate my opponent and try to outsmart him. That is how it should be every time I enter the ring. I should have stopped Kiss in Frederikshavn, but I aim to succeed with that against in Brondby against Cordero,’’ said the 22 year-old.
“I want to got out and show that I’m a skilled boxer. There will be many people watching in the arena and on TV, so this is a chance for me to prove to people just how good I am. ”
