Edwards talked that match as well about people who he believes have it out for him. Quotes courtesy of Deadspin.
What happened in his last fight:
“There’s nothing I can do about it. The guy I was originally supposed to fight backed out before the weigh-ins and they didn’t want to cancel my fight so they said they had to find some guy the night before. That’s what I woke up to, the guy I fought in the ring.”
If you can’t beat Van Goodman then you better sign with Atlanta again or something like that:
“It’s funny. Everybody keeps talking about doing this and doing that. Everybody has wanted to see me fail my whole life. I don’t care about what you have to say, I don’t care what ESPN has to say I don’t care about Inside Edition, I don’t care what nobody has to say. At the end of the day, if you want some, come get some. I don’t care who you are. (Host: I’m on your side.) You’re telling me if I can’t win then I need to go back to football. (Host: Well because if you’re going to be the heavyweight champion of the world then you have to beat Van Goodman.) Oh I’m not worried about that. If I was worried about that then I wouldn’t be sitting here right now doing this interview.”
Settle down Ray.
