"I been beating up these world champs, from Pacquiao to Bradley. I have been in several camps and I been getting sent home; Margarito and Ricky Hatton," stated undefeated jr. welterweight contender Karim "Hard Hitta" Mayfield, who is eager to get his shot at a world title. Having worked as a sparring partner for some of the biggest names in the sport, Mayfield is confident that his skills on par with any of the current champions.
