“Like Holyfield, I know the value of hard work and determination, and I know never to take any opponent lightly,” said Ibragimov from his Florida training camp. “I don’t care how old Holyfield is, I don’t care who he’s beaten or who has beaten him. In my mind, he is the most dangerous opponent in the world, and I am training harder than I ever have to defend my title on October 13th.” Ibragimov, also an Olympian, is already preparing for his first title defense, but he will break camp briefly later this week to meet the United States media on Thursday, August 30, at the Historic Paramount Theater at Hard Rock Café in New York City.

“I don’t like to leave training camp once I begin my preparations, but I am looking forward to meeting with the media, which has been very fair and complimentary of me since I came here,” said Ibragimov. “ I am also looking forward to meeting Evander Holyfield, but as soon as I’m done, I will be back in camp because I have to give my best for my fans when I face Holyfield.”
