GLORY 13 Tokyo - Flash Quotes


Errol Zimmerman

On facing Daniel Ghita and the future:
"This time Daniel knocked me out, next time I'll knock somebody else out."

On whether he suffered any injuries:
"I have no damage. I hope to fight soon and I hope to fight again in Japan with a different result."


Daniel Ghita

On the Japanese crowd:
"The public was magnificent. It's a big pleasure to fight in Japan. I feel like I'm at home."

On his plans for 2014:
"I finished the year in a good way and I'm looking forward to Christmas, but next year I don't give a chance to anybody."


Joseph Valtellini

On his performance against Nieky Holzken:
"I feel good. You prepare for these fights thinking you'll come out the champion, but at the end of the day, I don't have anything to look down on."

On his kickboxing record:
"That was my thirteenth professional fight and fighting someone with one hundred, that's a big difference in experience. That's not something that's going to turn me away."

On remaining motivated after suffering defeat:
"I like to rise to the occasion and I think I did so tonight. It doesn't do anything for me but make me go back to Toronto and train even harder. I'll be back next year even stronger and I'll have my opportunity again."

"My time is coming and before you know it, I'll be the champion."


Nieky Holzken

On defeating Karapet Karapetyan and Joseph Valtellini:
"I feel very good. I won the tournament and won by way of knockout. They were all strong guys, Karapet and Valtellini, but I said that this would be my year."

On his winning streak:
"I came from a 7-win streak, all knockouts. I've never felt so strong."

On his tribute to Ramon Dekkers:
"I did it also for Ramon Dekkers, because he was also in my heart. I said I was going to win because he was going to look from the stars above and give me the power, and give me the left hook and the liver shot to make everybody go down."


Rico Verhoeven

On facing Peter Aerts:
"It was a strong fight. He never comes for an easy fight. He comes 100% and tries to make it as difficult for me as possible and that's what he did."

On his performance against Peter Aerts:
"I'm not really satisfied. I was a little bit stuck. I wasn't as loose as I was when I won the championship, but I won this fight, so I'm happy. I hope I gave Peter a respectful retirement."

On Peter Aerts' power:
"The power is definitely there. That's heavyweight fighting. It can be over in a split second. When you get hit, you go down. That's the heavyweight game."

On Peter Aerts' conditioning:
"I saw Peter go down a little bit in the second round, but he still goes on with his fighting heart; it's amazing. I have a lot of respect for Peter for being 43 years old and still having that crazy good conditioning and being in such good shape."


Peter Aerts

On his post-retirement plans:
"I will start my gym. I hope to bring people to Japan and to GLORY. There's a new life for me now. I want to teach my knowledge to the young people."

"I don't come to pick up my money. I come to fight."
