TK: What kind of fight is it going to be?
Igor: We were preparing for an MMA fight. But I was told we couldn't find a matchup. So I'm going to do a kickboxing fight again.
TK: What weight is it going to be at?
Igor: I hope it's going to be at 145. That's what I'm preparing for.
TK: How are you doing with your weight cut?
Igor: I have another 5 pounds to go, so I should be able to eat some turkey at Thanksgiving.
TK: Do you know anything about the opponent you are going against?
Igor: I just found out today, I think it is Cameron King? I never underestimate any fighter. He has fought Dusty Sparks. I respect him and give him credit.
TK: Does he hold any belts?
Igor: I saw a couple of belts. I'm not sure which promotion they are for. So I guess he has some experience.
TK: You initially were training for an mma fight, now you're getting ready for a kickboxing fight. How does that change your training?
Igor: We were doing a lot of ground technique, takedowns, coming up. We will need to exclude that for a little bit and get back to more cardio, punching, striking, mitts, pads.
TK: Are you selling tickets?
Igor: For this fight I will be selling some tickets. I have a couple dozen. So we'll see who wants to watch me fight.
TK: This is a higher end fight, a higher end ticket.
Igor: The tickets are going to be around $45. I've fought for XFN before. I've had two kickboxing fights and one mma fight. I like that promotion. I know the people who organize it. It's a pretty good promotion, good people.
TK: So this is going to be on November 30th, and you're going to be finishing your weight cut right around Thanksgiving. How are you going to do Thanksgiving this year?
Igor: I have five pounds to go, so I should be able to get some good meals in before the fight. Maybe I'll try to cut more than I have to, so I can eat more at Thanksgiving. (laughter)
TK: Is there anything you want to say to your fans?
Igor: Man, I love my fans. Without fans nobody would be fighting. Support is really, really important. I appreciate anybody who supports me. Anybody who doesn't, well they give me motivation to prove them wrong.
TK: Everybody, let's all go and buy some tickets and support Igor Lyashchenko on November 30th for his fight at 145 pounds!
