Here is what Milton had to say about his training camp, his matchup with Calloway, fighting on BLK Prime PPV, and more.
On his recent training camp:
“Training camp has been amazing. Vegas has the best work, and I just sit back and reflect often on how blessed I am to see so many different styles in the gym. I have the motivation to train hard, but the thing that keeps me improving is the type of work I get, and the ability I have thanks to my team to be a full-time fighter. This has been a solid camp. I’m more than ready.”
His matchup with Dajuan Calloway:
“I am not taking easy fights. My next opponent has a good record, his coming to win, and he’s never been stopped, so this is a big step up in my boxing career.
“The harsh part of this sport is, sometimes you run into fighters who are just better than you. On this night that is what is going to happen, but I am not overlooking him at all.”
What a win will do for his career:
“In the heavyweight division, I feel I am one fight away from a big chance, a life-changing moment. I am nearing the point of being an eight-round fighter, and once you get to eight-round fights you can get the call for any type of marquee fight. So, this is simple, a win keeps my dream alive.”
On fighting in his first PPV on BLK Prime:
“I have fought on all types of networks, and now to fight on BLK Prime PPV, it feels like a perfect fit. Dreamland and BLK Prime, it sounds so right. In the future, I hope I can headline a card on BLK Prime, and bring it back to Black Wall St., in Tulsa, Oklahoma, I feel that would be historic.
“I just feel very welcomed and embraced with this platform and the folks at BLK Prime.”
