"I'll never be satisfied with my performance. I'm always striving for greatness. I'm always glad to get a win, and a win by KO is even better...I'm definitely looking to make noise sooner rather than later. Not necessarily on a fast pace, but on a strong and steady pace," stated up-and-coming heavyweight prospect Dominic Breazeale, who talked about his latest win, his future plans, and much more. Check it out!
PC: Dominic, how are things going?
DB: Life is good. Training hard every day and getting better. The Lord has blessed me with great opportunities and experiences.
PC: Congratulations on your win back in March. How do you feel about your performance?
DB: Thank you. You know, I'll never be satisfied with my performance. I'm always striving for greatness. I'm always glad to get a win, and a win by KO is even better.
PC: You had 2 fights in 2012 and you have already fought twice this year. When can we expect to see you back in the ring and how many more times this year?
DB: I will be back in the ring ready for war June 8th in Carson, California at the Home Depot Center. I would love to be in the ring at least 8 times this year. So far, it's been good.
PC: Who is currently training you and what gym are you training out of?
DB: My trainer is the living legend John Bray and we train out of Pullmans Boxing Gym in Burbank, California.
PC: Are you able to use the Olympic experience as motivation or is that something that you just left in the past all together?
DB: Turning pro has been the best thing for me. The Olympic experience was out off this world, but Olympic boxing is completely different than professional boxing. Yes, the experience was great, but I had to leave that in the past.
PC: Are you gonna take the patient approach or do you feel like the state of the heavyweight division, at least the perception in most people's eyes, allows you to be on the fast track and you are looking to make noise sooner rather than later?
DB: I'm definitely looking to make noise sooner rather than later. Not necessarily on a fast pace, but on a strong and steady pace.
PC: I know you are only 4 fights into your professional career, but do you see a young heavyweight out there that you feel like you are 5 or so fights away from fighting, and if so, who?
DB: No, I really can't point one out. I'm taking my fights one at a time .
PC: Obviously you have the height and reach to cause problems, but we are in an era of a lot of big heavyweights. What do you think separates you from the other heavyweight prospects out there right now?
DB: My inside game is beautiful and my body shots are devastating. Every punch I throw has bad intentions behind it.
PC: Who were your inspirations and guys who you really followed their style in this boxing game?
DB: My favorite boxers or boxing style would have to be the likes of Riddick Bowe, Jack Johnson, and Lennox Lewis. Those 3 boxers are a bad combination creating "Trouble".
PC: What, if anything, has been the biggest challenge as a pro in your young career?
DB: I can't really say I have had any challenges. Things have been smooth sailing. 4-0, 4 KO's, and I have not been out the second round yet.
PC: I definitely want to see more of you in that ring. Best of luck with everything and we gotta keep you on FightHype. Is there anything you want to say in closing?
DB: Thanks for having me on FightHype. 2013 is going to be a great year for Team Breazeale. Stay tuned because you don't want to miss this action. Thank you to all my followers and fans. Heavyweight boxing, here comes Trouble!
