Eric Molina is looking to exploit any mistakes IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, is sure to make when they box next Saturday in Manchester.
The American boxer is in England as he is trying for a second time to win a world heavyweight title, he was knocked out by Deontay Wilder in his first attempt to win the WBC belt in 2015.
However, Molina (25-3-KO19) has gone on to beat Rodricka Ray and most recently Tomasz Adamek since his 2015 loss.
“They judge me by the (Chris) Arreola fight (the second of three defeats), which was my first step up as heavyweight. You guys could’ve beaten me – I was weak-minded,” Molina said.
“I have grown into a very dangerous heavyweight. There’s no other heavyweight in the world who could have gone through the things I’ve gone through to get here.
“I have a vision in my mind as to where (Joshua) makes mistakes and I have a vision as to where I am very, very dangerous. In my mind, those fit together so well.
“I don’t feel Dillian Whyte is a big puncher. He’s a good fighter but he’s not a big puncher, so I know if he can hurt (Joshua, as he did in their 2015 fight), I can.
“I’ve got a list of guys I’ve sparred with and you guys would drop your jaw if I told you who I’ve hurt. I know I can hurt this man – it’s not even a question. Just like I know he can hurt me.”
