Teah of Philadelphia, who has a record of 16-3-1 with seven
knockouts is coming off a 10-round majority decision over
Sonny Fredrickson to win the crown in November knows that a
win on Saturday night will lead him to a possible big
"I had a very good training camp. Early on, it took a while
to get going after the win over Fredrickson, but then I
looked at some film on Nzau, and I saw that he is a tough
guy, so we picked it up for the rest of camp," said Teah
"Nzau is tough and durable, and I am not underestimating him
as an opponent."
Teah has won two of his last three against more heralded
fighters such as Fredrickson and Kenneth Sims, but Teah
knows he can't slip up against Nzau.
"Fredrickson and Sims were better names, but I know what it
takes to win as an underdog, so I am sure Nzau will be
looking to do that to me. I need to win this fight as I know
that bigger fights are very close to me."
Because of the recent success, Teah, who works for the city
transit system SEPTA, expects a lot of support as he enters
the 2300 Arena ring.
"I am very excited about the turnout that expect there to be
for me. Everyone at my job will be there in addition to my
normal fanbase who to support me for all of my fights."
