He doesn't seem to care what Bujaj has accomplished as he believes it is about what he brings to the ring.
"I do not study my opponents. I have heard of him but I fight on instinct."
Like Bujaj, Wright is not afraid to put it on the line against an undefeated opponent so early in his career.
"I am excited for this opportunity. I did not think it would come this early but this is what we train for. We do not want to wait to find out where we stand. All I am going to say is be ready for a hurricane this Thursday night in Brooklyn."
