Los Angeles, CA – While laid back in his approach to media day Keifer Crosbie is still focused on his opponent at Bellator 263 on Friday night.
“There’s going to be 18-thousand people and it’s going to be mental, but at the end of the day when you step into that cage I don’t give a sh*t who’s outside that cage. My only concern is the man in front of me. It doesn’t really matter it’s all noise at the end of the day. And noise doesn’t come into competition. Outside noise is just outside noise. Booing, cheering, supporting, doesn’t matter. My goal is to win a fight. There’s only one man that i’m intersted in beating and that’s the man in front of me,” Crosbie said.
Crosbie (8-2) is coming off a TKO loss to Charlie Leary where a bad cut forced a doctor stoppage at the end of the first round. Crosbie doesn’t count that as a loss.
“I am trying to get back in the win column. The last fight wasn’t a loss. It was a no-contest in my opinion. I didn’t lose that fight. I mean I haven’t really been beaten in a professional fight so I’m just looking forward to winning again to be honest. Hopefully I don’t get any little cuts that the doctor is going to stop this time. But this time I’m not going to get touched I don’t think so. I’m looking forward to just getting in there and getting the job done, yeah.”
Crosbie takes on Georgi Karakhanyan (30-11-1) at Bellator 263 from The Forum in Los Angeles, CA on Friday night.
“It’s such an iconic arena. I was only looking at ‘The Last Dance’ the other night where Michael Jordan. The Forum came on in and he was playing the LA Lakers in like a big final of a basketball game. It just hit me ‘I’m fighting here in four days’ that’s mad, you know what I mean?”
