Krasniqi about forthcoming fight with Bostice
Thursday, March 23, 2006
Krasniqi spoke to about the coming crucial phase of his boxing career.

You will fight on April 29th against David Bostice. How do you size up this fight?

Bostice is a good man and dangerous with his height of 6'5. He has good balance and boxed against good people. He lost controversially against Calvin Brock. But I still don't know Bostice so well. I still have to look at his videos.

What is your goal in this fight?

I assume in any event that I will win. And afterwards I would like to keep my promise and again box for the world heavyweight championship.

After this will you have the rematch against Lamon Brewster?

My desire is absolutely to box Lamon Brewster at the end of the year. For me there is only him. I absolutely want Brewster for personal reasons. Our first fight was a nightmare for me and I always confront my nightmares. When I lost against Saleta, I had the rematch against him and won. And I want to do it this time also. I want to continue my success and move upward. Because of my ranking position, Brewster must box against me again.

The fight against Bostice is still about a month away. How's your training going?

Training is going so far very well. At present I'm training in Berlin, but starting on Sunday my trainer Torsten Schmitz and I will move to my hometown Rottweil, where I will do my remaining preparation up to the fight. I am already in top shape. I have never gotten past the performance tests as easily as now. Everything runs according to plan.

What did you learn from the fight against Brewster and your first KO defeat?

Fundamentally each fight is instructive. Naturally I have learned much directly from this defeat and I hope that I succeed in the second run in making things better. I want to approach things more carefully and concentrate on boxing. I won't get involved in slugfests. I must simply box and the knockout comes by itself. That applies not only to a rematch against Brewster but against every opponent who comes.

On Saturday, WBC world champion Hasim Rahman kept his title against James Toney by a draw. Your comment?

I heard and read about it. However I didn't see it because in Germany the fight wasn't on television. What to me stood out was how overweight James Toney was. To look like a larger-than-life egg is really quite enormously embarrassing... I am ready to go against any heavyweight in the world, also against Toney and naturally Rahman. My priority is nevertheless a rematch against Lamon Brewster.
