Don't know if this has been posted before, but here is a recent quote from CC.
"After all this time I realize that you can not prepare well without real camp and an authoritative coach. That's the biggest mistake in my career. I was too lazy to go train at an elite camp. For example Hyppolite kills me on the pads and then I spar with three partners in a six minute round.
I couldn't spar to KO my sparring partner because those were mostly people who were training with me as a favor to me.
In Amsterdam it's a battle for life and death. I go for the KO and so does my sparring partner. In the future I think I will do most of my preparation in Amsterdam"
I won't get my hopes up too high because he says his training is different every fight, nothing really looks different. However, wishfull thinking is at its max.
