Robinson confident : BOXING
Saturday 04 February 1995
Damigella admits he has not watched any videotapes of his Welsh opponent, and said: "It doesn't always help to decide on a strategy before a fight, because the other man's strategy can change during it."
The 27-year-old baby-faced fighter, a quarter-finalist at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, added: "I don't really know what type of fighter Robinson is."
Robinson, however, has done his homework and knows what to expect at the city's ice rink. "He's more of a boxer type. I've worked him out and I'm very confident of keeping my title," he said.
"I'm still a very determined champion. In fact, I think I'm hungrier now than when I first won the title.
"Damigella may not have seen me on tape, but remember I'd never seen John Davison when I won the title. But I worked him out in two rounds and beat him."
Meanwhile Robinson has been forced to readjust his targets for 1995. The champion went into the new year with the resolution of banking a major pay-day from a unification fight against the World Boxing Council title-holder, the American Kevin Kelley.
The promoter Frank Warren was confident of coming up with the money to bring the "Flushing Flash" to Wales in the summer, but was stopped when Kelley lost his title to the Mexican Alejandro Gonzalez.
Warren said: "Talks were going well and Kelley's people were interested, but now he's lost the WBC championship, we will have to think again."
