Rob Brant Quotes
I’ve been in position where I’m supposed to win, especially in the amateurs, and that’s where things always went wrong for me. I’d be fighting against a country I’ve never heard of, knowing I’d be fighting Germany the next day and I would be totally looking over the guy. Then I’d lose to Latvia, for example. I stopped looking past guys back then because of that.
Chris Fitzpatrick is a good fighter. He fully embodies his record. 15-4. Good, not phenomenal fighter. If you’re sleeping though and just thinking you’re going to automatically beat this guy down, he’ll beat you. He’s not a huge puncher, but he throws volume. He wants to be on the inside and throw combinations. I need to take him seriously.
I know I’m on a short list to face (WBO Middleweight Champion) Billy Joe Saunders, but this is boxing, so until both names are on a contract, it’s too good to be true. I’m fully ready to take the challenge when it comes. I’m definitely looking for a big fight in the near future. I need to start taking on upper-level competition. I’ve been preparing all my life and now is the time to make it happen.
Chris Fitzpatrick Quotes
I’m going to win. I’m going to go in there and fight my heart out and come out with the W, hopefully. I know he’s explosive and he’s turning his punchers over a lot more. I’m going to try to move around him and make it a physical fight. That’s my kind of fight
My training went very well. Every camp has its trough moments, but for the most part it went well.
A victory over Rob Brant would be great for my career, to revive it. I was off for three years and lost my last fight. This win will put me right back on track.

Pechanga is a great venue. The casino is beautiful and well-kept and maintained. The ring set up looks tremendous. I’m very excited about tomorrow night.
This is our first quadrupleheader on CBS Sports Network. We’ve got future world champion Rob Brant, who is now rated in the top 10 of three sanctioning bodies. We have Skender “No Surrender” Halili, who put on a “Round of the Year” performance back in Niagara Falls. Malik Hawkins is our incredibly skilled welterweight, who is under close eye from Roy Jones Jr. We do a lot of work with Roy and when Roy sees talent, it’s talent. We’re excited about Malik. He’s got great management from Snapper and all the tools to become champion.
We’re also excited about Cem Kilic, an amateur champion from Germany who is now 5-0. He’ll be making his television debut. This will be like his try-out for a promotional contract. We believe in his manager, Shane Shapiro’s eye for talent, but the kid has to perform.
