Defiant Mock Vows to Conquer World in 2019
Evergreen super-middleweight Lolenga Mock is adamant 2019 will be the year he finally completes his world title dream.
The Denmark-based Congolese was denied his shot at the WBC crown by a hotly-disputed points defeat to Avni Yildirim in September but is preparing to take a step back towards the top on January 19.
Mock (42-15-1-KO13) said: “2019 is definitely going to be the year the fairytale comes true. I’m still highly ranked in the world and I showed against Yildirim I can box the young, strong boys.
“I still train in the old school way. I don’t take breaks or holidays like some fighters. I keep training at a high-level together with the young boys. It motivates me because I pressure them and they pressure me.
“I’m incredibly motivated to make 2019 my year. I’ve improved mentally because every challenge in life gives you a possibility to learn. Losing the way I did in Germany could break you but I’ve kept my dignity and my dreams.
“I felt very strong against Yildirim. I won that fight and even the German fans were saying the same. Now I want to get back in the ring and show everybody that I’m still here and still chasing my dream.
“I want everybody to know that I live by my words – even if the result in Germany was not fair, I NEVER give up!”
Mock’s remarkable professional boxing career began in 1991 and he famously dropped future cruiserweight and heavyweight king David Haye in 2003.
