So how is your training at the moment and give us and the fans an update please?
Things are very good and I am confident. I just need to have more fights so I can get back in to it one by one. Yeah, things are very good- I am happy with my training and I know I am ready to fight again.
You have Jason Retti first then Greg Tony in the KO WS next? What are your thoughts on both fights?
December fight is more to get back in the ring so that's a good start for me- I want more fights. GT- I know GT, he is my friend and he is a good guy. I know his style and I think I will have a good win, maybe KO- we see how it goes.
Who is managing Alexey Ignashov at the moment?
Lollo Heimuli is my trainer and he is great! I am negotiating with Igor (Jushko) at the moment, but if it Fails I will self manage my affairs. I have big plans and want more fights; if Igor and my negotiation fail I will approach K1 first and then see how it is.
So K-1 or KO, what is your preference?
I have a huge history with K-1 and I have beaten most of the present day fighters, I would like to be with K-1 but with KO they are giving me more fights, I want more fights so we will see how it goes- right now I want to get back in the ring.
How come the K-1 didn't give you any fights of lately?
Ahh, that's a problem with my manager and there is a lot of history to it. I am working on it at the moment with a proposal, but you know it is a long story, I will let you know when I can and ready to talk about it!
Has Dixon and the KO approached you to manage affairs for you?
Yes there is a proposal, like I said I am looking at every option- I am open to all and want the best deal for me, I need more fights!
So Dixon McIver could be your manager?
No, not at the moment- I am entertaining all proposals; I want what's best for my career.
Any message for the fans out there?
Thank you for the support, you will see me come back very soon, better than I was ever, much better. This will be just the beginning!
So K-1 Champ someday?
Why Not! I will be champion soon!
