Boxingtalk welcomes Freddie Norwood!

BT - Freddie, what's the latest ?

FN - I have been training for the past 11 and a half months, and I am getting ready to get back on top of the world again.

BT - Talk about your new contract with Prizefight Promotions.

FN - I am pleased with my contract with Prizefight, they are a good organization and they will be a force for years to come.

BT - Freddie you had some previous bouts with the law, served your time, and now you're back.

FN - Everybody in the world knows where I have been, I was incarcerated for protecting my mom. I did my time, and now I am back. I am focused, I am ready to move on now.

BT - When do you see yourself positioning back into another title shot ?

FN - I believe that within 10 or 11 months I will have a title shot. Whatever world title that doesn't duck me, or run from me, I will go after. I will be a number 1 contender, I am already there, I am already an aspect. I don't have to start over from the bottom, it won't take long.

BT - Who do you want next Freddie ?

FN - I don't have names right now, but I want anyone that will be willing to put their title up, and give me an opportunity. I came, I prevailed, and I conquered, I am going to come through.

BT - Freddie is there anything you would like to say in closing ?

FN - I want to tell them that I appreciate their support. I am not going to let my fans down, I am going to train hard, and stay humble. I am going to prove to the world that I am unstoppable in the ring.
