When asked about his upcoming fight and the condition of his opponent Hughes, Kambosos commented,

Kambosos also shared insight into his rigorous training routine. He noted,

“It’s been a brutal five weeks. There’s been a heat wave but that hasn’t dampened our spirits. I thrive in such conditions; it brings out the best in me.”

“Our preparation has been phenomenal. Every part of the training and game plan has been executed to precision. This pure confidence you see is a result of the hard work we’ve put in.”

“Right now, my weight is perfect. It feels surreal that the weigh-in is tomorrow. I feel fit, ready, and there are no issues.”

“Is my opponent really here for the fight or is it a vacation for him? Does he really want to be here? We’ll find that out on Saturday night.”

“When I land my shots early on, he’s really going to start questioning his presence in the ring.”

“He may be giving presents to his children, and that’s nice. But the present I’m giving is taking this victory and dedicating it to my son.”
