“My training has been excellent.  I feel great.  I know what I have going against me,” said McCreary.

In Miller, McCreary will be facing a guy who stands about 6’4″ and checks in around 260 lbs.  McCreary has been preparing for that with regular sparring against huge men.

“I know he is a big guy.  I been sparring with guys who stand about 6’8″ and 6’9″.  I know Miller is young, hungry and a puncher.  His skills are OK but he hasn’t fought at the level I have been at.”

McCreary has been a pro since 1998 and he feels that could be a big factor in his favor.

“My experience is a huge factor.  I know up until the last couple years that he has been an MMA fighter.  I just hope he doesn’t kick me or put me in a headlock.” quipped McCreary.

Despite being 41 years-old, McCreary is confident that a win in New York will catapult him into some great opportunities.

“I have a few years left in me.  This win will get me a bigger fight.  It is great to fight in New York.  I have fought in Los Angeles and Chicago but I have to treat this as just another fight.”

Because of the his past opponents, McCreary is giving himself a great shot to pull the upset.

“I am from Detroit.  I am a soldier who won’t back down and I am coming to win.  By the grace of god, I can pull the upset and further my career.”
