Quick q&a with talented up and comer
Greg Leon: Congrats on your recent destruction of Miguel Beltran Jr. Can you give us some thoughts on your performance? Chris Colbert: "My performance was my performance, I was doing what I do and I did what I had to do. I told you every time I get in there I'm going to be making a statement. I told y'all that I'm not no regular prospect, I deserve to be a champion." GL: You've already gone 4 times this year, will there be a fifth? Chris Colbert: "My next fight will take place before the end of the year and it will be for the WBA interim title."
GL: What would becoming interim champion mean to you?
CC: "You've got to pay your dues and this is just the next step to getting the world championship and I'm going to get mine."
GL: This is going to be your first twelve rounder, right?
CC: "If it goes twelve."
GL: Both of your ten rounders have gone two or less, would you like to go the ten round distance before taking part in a twelve rounder?
CC: "I haven't gone ten rounds, but I've gone eight a bunch of times and going twelve wouldn't be a problem for me at all. I do it all the time at the gym, so it's nothing. I don't mind not having gone the rounds because I'm going to get mine regardless. I'm going to do what I've got to do every time I get in there. It doesn't make what amount of rounds I'm scheduled for I'm dominating, I'm taking care of business and I'm getting mine and doing what I do best."
(Colbert's call dropped and we were unable to conclude the interview, there should be more to follow)
