I finished my training yesterday and now it's time for my body to recover. I am ready for another fight with Steve Cunningham. This fight has a few meaning s to me and to Steve. He will be fighting with a Polish fighter for the fourth time.He fought with Krzysztof Wlodarczyk twice. He lost the first fight and then he got his IBF federation belt. Now for the second time he will fight with me. I know that he remembers our past three fights very well. He has things to settle with me since i won in 12/11/2008 and I took the world IBF federation title.
The American holiday, Thanksgiving gave me an excuse for a quick break from all my training. To have a turkey on the table is American tradition for over 80 years. I sat at the table with my wife and daughters. This reminded me that we are getting closer and closer to Christmas.
All of USA lived through hurricane Sandy. The Eastern shore of the US, where my house is located, got hit right with the eye of the storm. New York, New Jersey was heavily hit with water and strong winds which destroyed trees, houses and electrical infrastructure. There was no electricity or gas. My family and I lived through the hard times but thankfully nothing bad happened to us. For a few weeks I started training but the losses from the hurricane have limited my training options.
I was very careful about releasing any information about the fight. The media speculated about my chances against Solis for about a month. The result of the talks between the promoters is known, Solis' agents didn't receive the full contract in the delegated time frame. Therefore there won't be a fight with the famous Cuban boxer and the results of that fight would have been important for the both of us.
