  Buatsi vs. Richards Press Conference Quotes

Joshua Buatsi:

"I think thereís always people to prove wrong EddieÖ The talking is nearly done. Weíre going to find out on Saturday. The switch hasnít flicked yet. I donít think it personally flicked during that face off but we are two or three days away and the switch will definitely flick.

"The struggle from camp, Iíve got that in me. And I know how I want to perform on Saturday. And itís time to show it because camp was very hard. And Iíve paid the price but someone else has got to pay it now.

"The way that life is now, I go anywhere I need to go to improve. It happened to be in the States. It happened to be in Cali and thatís where Iím at. We all have one career. So wherever I have to be, thatís where I have to be. My family my friends understand that when itís all over we can party and we can celebrate. But for now Saturday is whatís next.

"Every boxer has got an ego. Everyone sitting on this table has an ego and wants to win. Who here wants to go into a fight and lose? No hands. See what Iím saying.
