GL:  This is a chance for redemption.  You obviously feel that certain things happened in the first fight that led to you not getting the victory.  Tell us why things are going o be different this time. "The difference is going to be the result of the fight.  It's what I'm looking forward to.  I'm looking forward to getting back in the ring against Brewster."   

GL:  You're a student of the game.  How do you feel Brewster has grown or deteriorated as a fighter since your first fight?

WK:  I think he's more experienced than he was three years ago when we fought for the first time.  He was champion for two years.  I think he deserves a lot of respect.  He lost his last fight, last year, but it became fight of the year.  It was a very exciting fight.  Unfortunately he lost, and lost his title.  He's still a very good, dangerous fighter.

GL:  Do you consider yourself to be at your best right now?   Do you feel in the best place you've ever been mentally, physically, as a whole?

WK:  I'm in my prime right now.  I've had different experiences, and I think it's great.  It's great to be young and in your prime.  It's amazing.

GL:  How do you feel about your brother coming back to the ring?

WK:  If Vitali comes back, we could accomplish becoming champions at the same time.

GL:  What does a victory over Brewster mean to you?

WK:  A lot, because he's already here.  We just shook hands.  It means a lot.  We have a story we've begun, and now it continues with a rematch.

GL:  With Vitali coming back, do you feel as though you may achieve your goal of both being the heavyweight champions at the same time?  If so, what does that mean to you?

WK:  We were dreaming and talking about it so much.  I hope now is the time to accomplish that.  Vitali is five years older than I, so he doesn't have as much time.  This is the last shot we've got.  I hope we get the championship belt as soon as possible.

GL:  You've been doing a wonderful job of using your boxing notoriety as a platform for your charity work with UnNesta.  What's the latest with that project?

WK:  The project is going very good.  We collected almost a million dollars for children in Armenia.
GL:  Are you doing a similar thing with this fight?  Will the proceeds from this fight be going to your charity as well?

WK:  No, right now we've collected a lot.  Enough money for this project.  First we'll get things done, and if there's a need in the future we'll see.
