Dawson-Diaconu Press Conference Quotes
SACRAMENTO - Promoter Don King, in association with Maloof Sports & Entertainment, will present two world championship boxing matches at ARCO Arena on Saturday, Sept. 29 where the main event will feature a battle of “The Undefeated” with World Boxing Council light heavyweight champion “Bad” Chad Dawson opposing WBC No. 1-ranked mandatory challenger Adrian “The Shark” Diaconu.
“The ring is my home. It’s where I’m most comfortable.This is going to be my coming out party. They said Tomasz Adamek was tough and look what I did to him. I’m going to do what I did to Adamek to Diaconu on Sept. 29.
“I’ve seen Diaconu’s last few fights. He’s tailor-made for me. He can try to come inside on me or work from the outside. I’ve got a plan to cover whatever he tries to do.
I put in the work in training camp. I’ve got a couple more weeks to go. I’ve learned so much from my new trainer Eddie Mustafa in the first five weeks of training for this fight. I will have a tough fighter in front of me [on Sept. 29] but I will do what I have to do to win.
“I’ve seen that Diaconu has said he’s coming to kick Chad’s ass. I want to remind him that you’ve got to bring your ass to the fight to do that. Talk’s cheap. You’ve got to bring it.”
“I have had good training, sparring and diet leading up to this fight. I’m not so good with English so you’ll have to let my actions speak for me in the ring.
“On September 29 I’m going to put everything in my two hands, all of my experience and preparation, to win the fight.”
“We respect Chad Dawson. He had a great fight with Tomasz Adamek to become WBC light heavyweight champion but on September 29 there will be blood in the water and the shark will attack.”
