“What is except a ridiculous amount of money the usefulness of this fight?”, ask The Randamie. “Floyd is the best boxer of his era. He has against the greats have stood, and all his battles won. What honor has he still to achieve, against someone who never had a official match to punch?”
The Dutch stressed that the differences between Mixed Martial Arts and boxing are great. “Boxing is such a beautiful sport, many people underestimated. You have twelve rounds of three minutes, very concentrated. It is chess with your fists. If you have a blow out, you will give your cover open and the opponent for a response. It is so terribly difficult.”
“In MMA you have many more elements. If you do not succeed, you can in spades try. If that also fails, you can put your opponent down for a ground fight. You have so many more options to win a fight.”
“As a boxer you have not the possibility to use something different than your fists. If it fails, then you always collect. MMA and boxing are not comparable, it is totally different.”

“I go there not to stay awake,” explains De Randamie. “If I Sunday morning wake up, I will no doubt social media are flooded with images of the battle. If it turns out that it is a beautiful duel, then I’m going to look back.”
