It's the end of training and the press conference and the weigh-in are behind me. Now only a short walk and waiting for the next fight. At the press conference I stood next to Nagy eye to eye. This fact always has to be commented. He is a little bit shorter than me and is a nice guy over all. He admitted during the press conference that I was bigger than he expected. That was a point for me in the psychological fight.
Yesterday in world boxing and fitness center in Jersey City (New Jersey) I had a media training before my fight with Nagi Aguilera (17-6, 12 KO), which will take place on Saturday, March 24th in Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, NY. Link:
Instead of training in the ring, I am training patience and plan change. I want to have more influence on how to plan my further career. I have a few ideas for my life which I would like to make reality. My last three years in USA were successful. Right now I would like to make many changes which allow me to have a larger influence in the decision making. I am putting 2-3 years into the ring and I would like to use that time wisely. I need about two more weeks to present my own sport plans.
Today, January 17th 2012, the boxing world is reminiscing Muhammad Ali's fights. Today he is an idol to many people and he is celebrating his 70th birthday. I wish him the best health because in his case that is what is most important. Today he is sick and quiet and must depend on help from family.
