I’ve been fighting forever. Anyone that knows me will tell you, that’s what I do, I fight.

Dillian Whyte

“I don’t overlook no one,” he said. “I train hard for everyone and the violence of the sport excites me. I train for it. I love that. I’m ready for that. Why would I all of a sudden overlook someone now?

“The man is dangerous, look at him, he’s got it all. Like his team says he’s got a great team, he trains in Colombia, he trained here, he trained there. He came over, he adapted to the time zone and all this other stuff. Hundreds of amateur fights, and all this other stuff.

“But this doesn’t mean nothing, this is going to be a fight, and it’s one thing I know how to do – is fight. I’ve been fighting forever. Anyone that knows me will tell you, that’s what I do, I fight. I don’t know how to do a lot of other things well, but I know how to fight.”

Rivas prepared at altitude in his home country before finishing his training camp in Paris and the 32-year-old, nicknamed ‘Kaboom’ expects a physical clash with Whyte.

“I have worked very hard in the training camp and I’m looking forward to the fight,” said Rivas. “We’re going to see what happens in the fight on Saturday.
