Atlantic City, NJ — With eighteen days remaining for the hotly-anticipated rematch between reigning World Boxing Council (WBC) Middleweight Champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez and three-time World Champion Paul “The Punisher” Williams, both took time out of their training camps in Oxnard, CA and Washington, DC, respectively, to give us their thoughts.
“My training camp in Oxnard is going great; my team and I are having the best preparation ever.”
“This has been by far the hardest training camp of my career and my motivation is superior to all the fights I have fought in the past. My coach has added new training methods that are helping me improve my fitness overall. I feel that my body and fitness have improved tremendously as my body is feeling stronger and faster.”
“On November 20th fight fans will witness the best fight of my career.”
“It’s less than 20 days away from the fight and I know in my heart that I’m gonna get this belt from this guy because of the training that I have been going through.”
“I am going to follow Mr. Peterson’s game plan and the blueprint that Mr. Peterson has laid out.”
“For me it will be a no-brainer. I’m thinking about going in and stopping him.”
“Martinez and I are going to give the fans a good fight that they will enjoy. They better believe they are going to get their money’s worth.”
Lou DiBella, Martinez’ promoter:
“Sergio is one of the best athletes in boxing and is training for this fight like the professional he is.”
“On November 20 he will prove he is pound for pound champion.”
Dan Goossen, Williams’ promoter:
“To the fans, all I can say, get ready for what fighting is all about.”
“Once the bell rings it will be bombs away.”
