Sullivan Barrera speaks ahead of fighting Andre Ward

CUBA’S Sullivan Barrera plans to end Andre Ward’s hopes of fighting Sergey Kovalev when he boxes the American on Saturday.

“I’m stronger than Ward. I have the Cuban background and I learned a lot of skills there. More than anything, the determination to overcome anything in front of me will help me defeat Ward on March 26,” Barrera said. “Once I am in the ring, it’s my house.”

“Whatever Ward has, I will adjust to it and overcome it,” he continued, “I have two hands. He has two hands. I have a job to do on March 26.

“I know Ward and Kovalev are very highly respected and they create a lot of money and a lot of interest, but they don’t know what Sullivan Barrera is capable of doing. I will prove that on Saturday.”

But Barrera warned he may need a knockout. “I’m not really a guy that has to look for a knockout. My boxing skills speak for themselves. I am fighting Andre Ward and fighting here in Oakland, so I don’t think a decision will be rendered in my favor,” Sullivan added.

“To all the fans, especially the Cuban fans that have supported me please know that come Saturday, I am going to do everything I have to do to come out victorious.”
