DR: Yes sir, I will be in attendance for a good night of boxing.
IM: It’s been quite some time (2015) since we last saw you fight. Tell us what Razor Ruddock has been doing lately?
DR: I have been training as always.
IM: Does that mean you will continue fighting?
DR: Yes and I am training my adopted son at the same time I am training myself.
IM: You are always keeping in shape; always ready to fight. You have that fighting mentality.
DR: Yes. I am always ready.
IM: Tell us what will you be doing tomorrow evening?
DR: I will be signing autographs.
IM: You have lots of fans including myself.
DR: Thanks, yes. I guess I do since I love boxing more than anything else. I would like to prove those wrong who say I do not know boxing.
IM: I'm glad that your are now training your son, that you are doing what you love to do in boxing. I wish you all the best and I will see you tomorrow evening.
DR: Thanks Ivan.
