"I sent Alfonso Gomez a fight proposal, I challenged him on Twitter, and he basically sent me a response saying, 'It ain't gonna happen. I don't want it and have a good day.' That is some of the most coward shit I have seen in a long time. He's supposed to be a Mexican warrior. Where ya pride at, manÂ…I have a lot of respect for Mexican fighters, but he is embarrassing to themÂ…this fool Gomez just blatantly said he didn't want it and that's just straight up coward shit right there," stated former welterweight champion Randall Bailey, who talked about a potential clash with Alfonso Gomez. Check it out!
PC: I hear you got some choice words for Alfonso Gomez my man.
RB: Man, I sent Alfonso Gomez a fight proposal, I challenged him on Twitter, and he basically sent me a response saying, "It ain't gonna happen. I don't want it and have a good day." That is some of the most coward shit I have seen in a long time. He's supposed to be a Mexican warrior. Where ya pride at, man?
PC: Alfonso Gomez vs. Randall Bailey would have been a nice one too.
RB: Exactly. His claim to fame is retiring Arturo Gatti, really? That's what you about to go on?
PC: Did you watch his fight the other night, and if so, what were your thoughts?
RB: Yeah, he fought a friend of mine. I thought my friend was gonna beat him, but stranger things have happened. I thought it was a good opportunity for him to come back against me. It would have been a good opportunity for me and him. When you claim you doing it for the fans, be a man of your word. You claim to be a warrior...but you Mexican, dude. I respect fighters. I have a lot of respect for Mexican fighters, but he is embarrassing to them.
PC: It's gotta be frustrating for you to not be able to get guys in the ring.
RB: Yeah man, but a lot of people think it's the promoters that's doing it, but let me tell you, these promoters out here are dealing with girls. They dealing with girls and these guys are crying about opponents. I'm not saying it's Golden Boy that don't want to make it. If you a real fighter, step up and say you want to fight this person or that person. I respect Brandon Rios. I respect that dude because when Richar Abril called Brandon Rios out, he went straight through his door to make it happen. "Oh, you calling me out? You wanna holla at me? Lets do it." I like Brandon Rios. I like Brandon Rios, but this fool Alfonso Gomez, he gets nothing from me.
PC: Not to get off of Gomez, but they are looking for an opponent for September 6th. Is that something you would do?
RB: Man...I respect Berto too, because Berto don't want no parts. He ain't gonna respond back to me. He ain't gonna say nothing and he gonna leave it at that. But this fool Gomez just blatantly said he didn't want it and that's just straight up coward shit right there. At the end of the day, all these promoters and Al Haymon, these guys have tough jobs now because they gotta deal with some of these fighters. If Al Haymon mention my name to one of these fighters, first thing they gonna say is, "No." What is he supposed to do? He can't do nothing about that. His job is to sign fights. These cowards sitting around saying no, he gotta do his job and get them a fight. I'm giving a lot of slack to these promoters right now because I'm seeing it firsthand. I'm seeing these fighters wine and cry like babies and only wanna fight certain fighters.
PC: If Alfonso Gomez is reading this, what do you want to say to him?
RB: Alfonso Gomez gets no respect from me and he living off of that Arturo Gatti fight. Man, that shit was a long time ago, man. Step yo game up fool and fight somebody real!
