Steve Claggett Ready For His Upcoming Title Fight


In 9 days Canadian prospect Steve “The Dragon” Claggett (16-2-1, 11 KO’s) takes the biggest step of his young career when he takes on Francesco Cotroni (7-2, 4 KO’s) for the Canadian Welterweight Title in Edmonton, Alberta.

With the title on the line and a bright future ahead for the champion, Claggett has found new focus.

“I’m ready, I am stronger, faster, sharper, more committed than ever before,” said Claggett. “I’m in the best shape of my life. I can’t wait to fight.”

Claggett split his training camp between two locations, Las Vegas and Calgary. The work and knowledge that Claggett obtained from his sessions in the Mayweather Gym has set the tone for his camp and when he came back home the momentum came with him.

“I’m ready to fight. My peak fitness and sharpness level will be timed correctly. I like to work hard right up until fight time and my preparation will show next Friday night. I just feel like I am more ready than ever before. My mental game has always been strong but now my focus is a hundred percent, my training is strategic and experienced these days. My sparring for this camp has been excellent, both in Las Vegas and back home here in Calgary. I just have finally brought it all together, my life has one goal at this moment. Win this fight.”

Claggett has had some nice KO’s in his career and the body shot that he delivered in his last fight to seal the deal was a beauty.

When asked if he would KO his opponent he said that he would go for the opportunity if it arises but he does not like to make predictions.

“I don’t like to make too specific of predictions because I respect fighters. He won’t be able to handle my pace or my sharpness. I’m ready for 10-12 rounds today. That being said, if the opportunity is there I will take him out.”
