Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic spoke about his relationship with Pat Barry this week following their heavyweight bout in June of 2010 and discussed how close the two have become:
FO: You and Pat Barry seem to have developed a really solid friendshipâ€¦
Oh yeah, I adore him. Pat Barry is one extraordinary guy. He is my true friend. Even though we did not have too much contact until recentlyâ€¦ as far as I am concerned, it takes some time to call someone a friend. But Pat Barry has been sleeping at my house, he has a heart that I cant remember seeing for a long time. A clear and pure heart, there is no evil in him at all. Evil doesnâ€™t exist in Pat Barry, he is a good guy, you can trust and rely on him, he is a true friend.
He is a guy I like a lot, I told him that one day if he makes the wedding commitment to someone, I am ready to be his best-man if he wants to call me. Now you understand how much I like the guy. He stayed for two weeks here and slept three or four nights in my house, had lunch and dinner with me, we talked a lot about things. He is one extraordinary guy. Beautiful person.
FO: I have to admit, I am impressed and amazed that Pat Barry managed to get you to open a Facebook profile. I assume this was his doing?
Yeah he opened my Facebook profile of course - because I donâ€™t know how to do it. He put all the photos up, he made some photos on his iPhone and put them up, because I donâ€™t know how to do that either. I have never in my lifeâ€¦ its terrible to say but I never had a camera in my hands, never took photo of anything unless with a mobile phone.
But I never had a real camera or an iPhone or something, I have just a regular piece of shit phone. I donâ€™t like touch screens and all this because I drop it five times a day and I will smash it on the first day. So of course he did it because he is high-tech, he knows how to do it all. He opened Facebook profile for me and put the photos and all information, while I sat with him.
