Here’s what Shabranskyy had to say regarding his upcoming fight:
 
VYACHESLAV “LION HEART CHINGONSKYY” SHABRANSKYY, WBC USNBC Light Heavyweight Champion:
“My training camp was great. I did all the necessary rounds of training for this fight. Now we’re just working on the speed during these last two weeks.”
 
“Dmitry Bivol [WBA Light Heavyweight Champion] and David Benavidez [WBC Super Middleweight Champion] have helped me a lot with sparring. They come to the gym and they give me real work. We just train real hard and help each other. It’s great being able to spar and train with these champions.”
 
“This is a very big event. Fighting for a world title–it’s all or nothing. Right now, I’m not thinking about [Kovalev]. I’m not thinking about what he has done or what he is doing. I’ll see him on Nov. 25, and then after the fight, I’ll tell you about him.”
 
“I was so excited when I found out this bout would be for a world title. I had accepted the fight before knowing it would be for a world title. We got the call from his side and we took the fight. But then the WBO called and we were very excited. I’m very hungry and prepared to win.”
