I was really excited when I heard. Mirko beat Sapp recently in K-1 and I also lost my last fight so I think this is a chance for me to put my name up their with the top fighters. I want a fierce fight.
Basically concentrating on everything that I have done until now, except much harder. I've been training with Stefan Leko, my brother and other Golden Glory members. The reason that I haven't done any specific training for Mirko is that until I got the offer for this fight 2 weeks ago, I was scheduled to fight a different fighter.
