“If you don’t think you’re the best in the world, then you’re doing the wrong thing,” said Brady, who believes he’s the top welterweight in the world, and has the 15-0 record to back up his claims. All that’s left is him getting a chance to prove it, and while a quintet of victories over Court McGee, Ismail Naurdiev, Christian Aguilera, Jake Matthews and Michael Chiesa have impressed, if he can go to 16-0 by defeating Muhammad, that will be a statement. Not that we’ll here Brady shouting at the top of his lungs about it should he get his hand raised this Saturday.
“You have to have confidence, but you also have to be humble, too, because there are a lot of guys who are too cocky and they let that get ahead of them and that’s not me,” he said. :I have just enough confidence, but I’m also humble enough to keep my head on the right track.”
Having that humility is easy when training with killers everyday, but it also comes from the people joining him on this work trip.
“I think I’ve got my head on pretty tight and I’ve got people around me that make sure I’m doing the right thing, but I know how fortunate I am to be where I’m at, and I was raised by good parents, so I know what I’m doing,” Brady said. “I’m just here, I want to fight, I want to make a legacy for me and my family, and perform to the highest standard that I know I can, and I have no excuses. This is my life – training and fighting is my life and the people around me have allowed me to be able to do that, so I’m super fortunate and I’m just grateful for the opportunities, and I can’t wait to get in there and do the damn thing.”
It’s almost time, Mr. Brady. And if things keep going the way they are, he won’t be having too many quiet training camps anymore.
