George Kambosos Jr: Soon I'll be a world champion!

Dedicated to his goal one hundred percent. was at George Kambosos Jr's. media workout on Wednesday, for his fight with Richard Pena tonight in Athens, and spoke with him after the end of his mitts session.

On how he feels:

"I feel great. I am hungry and very ready for [Friday]. Everything will go as planned during training camp and I can't wait to put on a great show for the Greek fans."

On if his opponent will give him a hard time due to the size of the ring (20x20):

"No, not at all. I am going to go in, do what I know how to do, and get the result in impressive fashion."

On what he thought about Joshua vs Ruiz Jr:

"Joshua's style didn't match Ruiz Jr's. at all, because Joshua needs taller opponents in order to control the distance with his jab, which he did not do on Saturday. Something was not right with him, I don't know what."

On if the rumors about Joshua getting knocked out during training camp are true:

"I heard that as well, since I was training in Miami at the same time, but I was not there, so I cannot say."

On how his three training camps with Pacquiao have helped him:

"I always had hand speed but with Manny it went to another level. The 250 rounds of sparring we did together took me to another level."

On his next move:

"Provided I get past Richard Pena successfully I will go after the IBF world title, since I am ranked #5 with them. I want [Jose] Pedraza. He is nothing special, I have all the tools to beat him. I believe I can stop him."

On if he's been to Greece before and how he likes it:

It's my first time and it's beautiful! It's my country and I definitely want to come back.
