Vinny Maddalone Guarantees 100's of Punches per Round and Victory on Thursday

"I’m going to go back to my old ways...You’ll see me throw a hundred punches each round."

BoxingTalk:  Vinny, how did preparation go for your fight against Jeff Yeoman this Thursday?

Vinny Maddalone:  It went great.  I’ve been at the gym almost two and half months because the fight was going to be in February and then got moved back to March 6th, so I’m ready to go.

BoxingTalk:  What did you guys work on during camp that will ensure yourself victory on Thursday?

Vinny Maddalone:  Pretty much sparring and working the mitts.  I’ve been working on moving the head, and a lot of bobbing and weaving.  You’re going to see a lot of head movement.  This will be my coming out party with head movement.

BoxingTalk:  What do you know about your opponent?

Vinny Maddalone:  Not too much.  I know he’s 21-8 from Indiana with most of wins in Indiana.  Whenever he stepped out of Indiana, he lost.

BoxingTalk:  With most of your wins coming by way of knockout, you are known for your power.  So what happens if you land your best shot and Yeoman is still standing?

Vinny Maddalone:  I just keep attacking.  I was training for a 10 round fight.  I’m going to go back to my old ways and pressure him.  You’ll see me throw a hundred punches each round, and if he doesn’t go, I’ll just keep pressuring him.

BoxingTalk:  What do you feel a victory on Thursday will do for your career?

Vinny Maddalone:  Every victory is bringing me closer to a world title shot.  At this stage I can get a call at any time for a world title fight.  I’ve got to be ready.  This win will be great.  I know I can’t afford a loss, and only winning is on my mind.

BoxingTalk:  What should fans expect to see from you on Thursday?

Vinny Maddalone:  They’re going to see the vintage Vinny Maddalone.  You’ll see me throw three and four punches at a time.

BoxingTalk:  Is there a message you would like to give the heavyweight division as you come into this fight?

Vinny Maddalone:  Everyone saw the Klitschko-Ibragimov fight.  It wasn’t exciting.  People paid to see those fighters, and neither one took a chance.  But with me, whatever fight I’m in, it’s always going to be exciting.  I’ll always be coming forward.  My message is put me in a fight, and I’ll make it exciting.
