I've been in contact on and off with Guinn since about 03. He became a favorite fighter of mine since before his biggest wins against Harrison, Grant and his stout showings vs top contenders.
Once again, he told me he was 100% in shape, the best of his career. At the weighin he looked the part. Solid and determined. I sent him video of the moments Ding had Boystov hurt and reminded him that his power and athleticism were far greater than Dings, and that his chin was the stuff of legend. His response was something to the effect that I knew exactly what he was going to do to Denis. Once again, he was lethargic and unconcerned about how far back this loss set him.
