ADRIEN BRONER, WBC Lightweight World Champion

“It’s not a gimmick.  It’s not fake.  It’s not a game.  I don’t put on a show for the cameras.  You might take it as an act, but this is just me.

 

“Antonio DeMarco is a hell of a guy.  He has a nice spirit.  When we fought, there wasn’t any trash talking.  This guy [Rees] comes in talking trash.  People think that I’m playing [games], but I’m serious.  I don’t know Gavin.  I don’t even know his name.  I don’t know if he’s playing.  I just know I’m not.

OAKLAND, CA, November 28, 2010 — Once again boxing fans and experts were quick to point out the strength’s of Andre Wards challenger, “Sakio is has a long reach, great power and is tough as nails”, or a similar quote could be read on boxing forums across the internet.   This seems to be the pattern now for Ward fights, after completely dominating Edison Miranda, Mikkel Kessler and Alan Green, he will still be questioned and doubted before his next big fight.
