“This is the biggest, most important fight of my life. I will destroy Toney.
“I have no fear and am ready for anything he has to offer and that includes his tricks, style and maneuvers. He is going to see things from me that the world has never seen before. I have never been primed for a fight like I am for this one. I have had excellent sparring with top-notch guys.
“Toney knows he made a silly mistake by agreeing to fight me. I am going to hit him everywhere.
“Toney has nothing. Whatever power he had went away 20 years ago.
“I promise you I will win by knockout’’
“I feel like I normally would a few days before any fight, but this is not just “any” fight. This is the biggest fight ever for me.
“I have worked very hard. I know Eric Aiken is a great, tough fighter who is really coming into his own. But I am in great shape.
“I am so ready to fight. I wish the fight was now. Waiting is the hardest part, especially the last couple days when time goes so slow.’’
