Amir Mansour: I expect Breazeale to come to fight

Heavyweight contender Amir Mansour (21-1, 16 KO's) is ready for a tough task next Saturday night when he takes on the undefeated Dominic Breazeale (16-0, 14 KO's). The fight will be part of the Garcia-Guerrero card in Los Angeles on PBC on Fox. Breazeale will face his toughest test to date in Mansour.

"I expect Breazeale to come to fight." Mansour said. "Looking at his prior fights, he doesn't back down. That's what I like. I don't think that he's going to run. He'll engage and it'll be an interesting fight. Breazeale is a tall guy but he's nothing different. You just have to train hard and focus on the task at hand. I prepare to fight. I don't prepare to run from a guy. I'm preparing to strategically target my opponent's weakness. I don't think he's faster than me, I don't think he's stronger than me, he's just taller than me. I don't think this fight is going the distance. I'm always going to predict that I'm going to be the winner. I really want to get this guy out of there and not leave it in the judges hands. This isn't my first time on the big stage. A win is a win. We're all one punch away from success and one punch from failure. Any win is a blessing.
