Maynard | "I Know I'm Going To Win." Against Guida
By Red Mattos:
While preparing for his next fight against Clay Guida, Gray “The Bully” Maynard got in a quick little workout against an undefeated “fighter”. Actually, he answered a few random questions by Fox News anchor, Jenn Fredericks.
She asked Gray if he thinks he’s going to win his fight against “that guy with weird hair”. His response: “I know I’m going to win. There’s no thinking about it.”
When asked about having to go all five rounds or ending the fight early, Gray prefers the latter, saying, “That’s always the plan, get it done real quick.”
She questioned what was going through his head after the nine second K.O. victory over Joe Veres back in 2007. “Wow, that’s the quickest payday I ever got. That’s a lot of money for nine seconds.”
He then talked about making weight and dropping the pounds. “I’m always eating healthy. But, the more you train the easier it [the weight] is to come off, so you slowly start to inch down.”
And then putting it back on. “I add on like 12 to 18 lbs. for the fight.”
Before they begin their “sparring session” Gray makes a request: “Don’t mess up the hair. It took me a long time to do it this morning.”
After a quick one-two combo on the pads she proceeds to pounce on him, smothering him with punches and elbows. She actually looked a lot like the Carpenter. Perhaps she is Gray’s secret training weapon. Then again, she did call it boxing. So probably not.
The fight takes place June 22nd at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City.
