"Bad Blood" Quotes Holly Holm vs. Melissa Hernandez

Melissa Hernandez:

“Holly Holm is not the pound-for-pound best. Look it up: I am. I have one loss that’s not a loss because I was hometowned. I am No. 1. I am women’s boxing. I am the pound-for-pound best in the world. This is my game.

“Holly may be one tough rabbit, but I am declaring rabbit season.

“On Dec. 4, the tall will fall.

“Her ‘style?’ Call that a style? It’s about running in fists first. She gets away with a lot, wrestling and hitting and holding, excessive pushing. But I have a check hook for all that.

“We’re the true warriors of the sport. Not someone like Holly - a big girl fighting small girls.

“She will have the hometown and the judges and the referee, but I have a game plan. ON the other hand, I’ll probably get DQ’d for showboating.

Holly Holm:

“I always figured I’d be fighting Melissa Hernandez, sooner or later. I expect a tough fight from her.

“I’ve never been able to talk smack like that for a fight. What happens if you lose? It only makes you look . . well, y’know.

“I’d rather set aside the effort and use it in the gym. It’s sort of cliché to say it, but it’s about showing it in the ring, letting your fists to the talking. That’s how I prefer to do it. The rest is just hogwash.

“Do I let it get in my head It makes the fight more exciting. Beneath all the talk, though, I know she has a fighter’s heart, and I respect that. I know she’s coming to win and that is what matters.

“If a fighter was quiet, I’d be more worried about that. But I just take what she says and I’ll use it for motivation."
