Harris speaks on latest loss!

JA: In your own eyes tell us about the fight the other night Tyrone? "I really don’t know what to say about the fight except that I thought I was doing a good enough job to win. When I watched the tape on TV I knew that I should have done a couple of things different. I didn’t think Koba won the fight; I thought that the fight should have been a draw."

JA: You hurt him a couple of times in the fight and you didn’t follow up, were you gun shy at all?

TH: I think that I was too careful in the fight. I should have done what my dad told me too do and that was throw a lot more punches. I watched the tape of the fight and I wish that I pressed him more, I did have him hurt a couple of times and I wish I put the heat on him more.

JA: Was you nervous going into the fight because your last fight on TV you did get knocked out. Did that have anything to do with you not getting off as good as you wanted to?

TH: If you are scared to get knocked out than you shouldn’t be in the game fighting, it didn’t have anything to do with that. I was taking my time in the fight and I should have thrown more punches. Basically I was fighting to safe in the fight.

JA: Did he give you any trouble in the fight?

TH: No he didn’t give me any trouble in the fight, like I said if I threw a lot more punches in the fight and worked off my jab a lot more I would have knocked him out. When I was watching the fight I thought that I was winning the fight but I guess I wasn’t doing enough. I was talking to one of the judges after the fight and he told me that I wasn’t doing enough in the fight to win and that is why he gave the decision to Koba.

JA: This is two losses in your last three fights. Do you think that there is going to be a change in Team Tyrone?

TH: Maybe in my next fight you will see a change in team Tyrone. I think that their needs to be a change in my boxing style and in outside the ring. I went into the fight ready and I fought the guy wrong and I knew that I should have threw a lot more punches in the fight. I really cant explain why I lost the fight, all I know is that I should have won the fight.

JA: Is there anything that you would like to say in closing Tyrone?

TH: Yeah I just want to thank everyone for their support. Believe me you haven’t seen the last of Tyrone Harris.
