Ever since the announcement of my match with Eddie Kingston, I can't help but notice a trend of comments like "sorry about your luck,
Green Ant," and "poor Green Ant," even "Eddie's gonna kill you".
Don't be sorry for me for one second. If you've followed my career at all, you know that I'm not afraid to take a beating. I'm not
afraid to set foot in the ring with anyone. I'm walking into Reading knowing full well that it's going to be one of the toughest,
if not THE toughest match of my career. But I'm not walking into Reading to die.
I'm aware of the odds. I've wanted this match for a long time. I've traveled across this country and to the other side of the planet
with Eddie Kingston, but we've never been face to face in the ring, one on one.
You could argue that nobody fights harder than Eddie Kingston. He's somebody who feeds off of adversity and pain. Every single time
he steps in the ring, you know you're about to see a true battle. And when I get my chance to step in the ring with Kingston on February
9th, it's going to be fireworks. Because the man I am facing holds the prize that every one wants. The Grand Championship. Maybe people think
of me as a Young Lion...well then I guess I need to show those people what I'm made of.
One way or another, on February 9th I will not give up until it's over. So for me, it's win or die. I'm looking forward to the challenge,
Eddie, and I hope you are too.
