Dominic Wade: I'm a thug...I might break Golovkin's face

It feels like Dominic Wade's confidence (and his street cred?) is growing with each passing moment

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

FightHype just caught up with Dominic Wade & Co. for a video interview ahead of this Saturday's title fight against Gennady Golovkin. And while Al Haymon's mouthpiece Sam Watson did most of the talking, Wade himself offered up a few of his thoughts on the fight.

Wade on being on the big stage for the first time:

"I'm taking it pretty good, man. I've been working you know, so ain't nothin' new."

On what makes him different from past Golovkin opponents who were scared of his power:

"I'm me, I'm a thug..."

On his first opportunity to fight for a middleweight championship:

"It's beautiful, I'm ain't gonna get all into the hype right now. When they say 'and new,' that's when I go..."

On his own power that he's bringing into the fight:

"A lot of strength, a lot of power, a lot of twist into it. I'm tellin' you, it's gonna work...I might break his face."

On sizing up Golovkin when he saw him in person:

"He ain't too much bigger, I'm longer than him and everything. Look [showing his fists to the camera], that's what gonna do it right there. These ain't little."
