RSLAF Welterweight Champion, Daniel Lassayo (Hot Temper) has said in Freetown that he will take the fight to his opponent, Abubakarr Katta from the Southern Region and the Sierra Leone Police representative.
He made this statement during a press briefing organized by the Boxing Association on Wednesday, 6th April 2016 at the Boxing Gym where the new date for their re-bout slated for Friday, 22nd April 2016 at the Tennis Court in the Siaka Steven Stadium in Freetown, was announced.
In the press briefing Lassayo Stated: “I will put on a devastating and clinical performance. I am going to take the fight to him. You are going to see spiteful punches and hurtful shots, so Katta better be ready.”
“I will show why I am the welterweight Champion and show people what I can do it. If he wants to stand and fight, we can fight. If he wants to box, we’ll box. I haven’t needed to show how tough I am yet and that I can grit it out, because I’ve out-boxed everyone I’ve faced.
However, he wants it I don’t mind. If you see me sparring every day in the gym, I just want to have a tear-up”.
“You don’t win fights like that or at least, I’m instructed not to. I’m told to box all the time but when it comes down to it, I would love to have a tear-up. I have never had the trash talking and at weigh-ins I have never had anyone in my face, but it won’t affect me at all.”
Katta noted: “Lassayo is a runner; we know he’s a runner, he boxes and runs away. He hasn’t really fought anyone yet like my type. He just walked forward with his hands up.”
