Let's get right to it brother, you're going to be fighting Chop Chop Corley on August 18th, tell us all about it. It just came about, Marshall isn't doing this card but he put me on the card and they offered the name and we was like we'll do that. Corley is a great fighter. Of course he's not in his prime anymore, but this is a fight that I have to take very seriously because he's a former world champion and he's not to be taken lightly.
GL: He's a former world champion that's become a test for fighters on the come up. Is that how you're looking at him? Is this a fight where you're going to be analyze how well you're progressing?
Mykal Fox: "I think it definitely is. He's the kind of guy that if you're not ready for he will clip you. I figure that me getting in there with a former world champion it's going to tell me if I can really make a good go of this."
GL: In your mind is this a fight your supposed to dominate?
MF: "I want to look dominant and I want to look great. I don't want to squeak by with a win, I want people to leave that fight saying Mykal Fox is ready."
GL: This is the kind of fight that people will look at you differently if you're able to pitch a shutout.
MF: "Definitely, and there's no room for mistakes because Chop Chop still has a crazy left hand."
GL: Do you wish you had more time to get ready for him?
MF: "I was already in the gym and we had a really solid four week because I knew I was going to be fighting. I think it's enough time because I never really leave the gym. I was orginially supposed to fight last Saturday night so it's not a big deal for me at all. I'm going to be ready to go and I will be at my best."
GL: What are you hoping a victory over Corley leads to?
MF: "I don't know because I haven't looked that far ahead. This is a fight that I'm taking very, very seriously and I'm not looking past him at all."
GL: What do you think about that 140 pound tourney? Do you expect Regis Prograis to take it?
MF: "I do. There's a couple of dogs in that tournament, but I'm rooting for Prograis. I like the way he fights, he's a southpaw too and he's from the states so I want to root for him off of that."
GL: How do you feel about making your debut at the Maryland Live Casino?
MF: "It's great because this is the first card they're putting together and being on it is kind of a big deal. Since I'm on it, I want to look good. I want it to be a good turnout, I want to look good on TV and keep boxing coming to Maryland. We've got the venues to do it because we've got the Harbor and now we've got Maryland Live."
GL: Closing thoughts?
MF: "If you're from the area and you're coming to see the fights I thank you for your support. If you're watching it on TV, you're going to like what you see."
