Quotes

  • "I can't wait to put on a good show against a good fighter like Glen Johnson. I'm coming in to this fight, very, very primed. I'm feeling really, really fit and strong. This is an opportunity for me to show that I'm a pay-per-view fighter, and I'm not going to waste it. It's going to be brutal if he keeps walking forward and taking shots. I'm going to be fresh, fit and strong and powerful, throwing combinations from Round 1 to Round 12. It's going to be 12 rounds of hell if that's what's needed." - Carl Froch [3]
  • "I know boxing inside out. I'm just going in there confident and to use my skills. Froch is a great fighter. I have no disrespect for him. This is about business and I'm going in there to win the fight." - Glen Johnson [4]
