Kevin McBrides New York City Press Conference Quotes

29.08.07 - McBride: Im coming here (NYC) to win. Im a big heavyweight and I proved myself against (Mike) Tyson. A lot of people said Kevin McBride wouldnt beat him and I did. Talk is cheap and I have to do it October 6. Youre supposed to be as good as your last fight, but Ive changed my whole team, totally. Before the Tyson fight I benched 260-pounds; now I can do 460, and I feel strong. But I have to prove it in the ring October 6, on my own. I have a great team behind me now.

I wanted to fight in the Olympics and I accomplished that. I fought my idol, Mike Tyson, and it was a great night beating a legend. Years before in my first pro fight I fought a draw it should have been a win and afterwards I told my father I wanted to fight Tyson someday. He said if I believed in myself and worked hard I would. It was the greatest night of my life. And I met Muhammad Ali, who shook my hand and said, Im the greatest, youre the latest. I was supposed to get a world title fight but I didnt get good advice or have structure. I took one fight that I barely won and I lost my last fight. Mike Mollo didnt beat me; I beat me. Now, Jerry Quinn is 100-percent behind me with our new team.

Im looking forward to October 6th. Im a man of action more than words. This is the toughest game in the world; unforgiving but its going to be an explosion. Andrew Golota is going to need all the Polish there; Im going to have a lot of Irish there for me. I appreciate all of the Irish supporting me and theyll witness a fairytale story thats real. Ive dreamed of fighting in Madison Square Garden and on October 6th Im going to knockout Andrew Golota. It aint going the distance.
