Do you have any post-fighting career plans or aspirations?

"Right now my plans are for the May 5th fight. I aspire to do a lot of things in my life, but that's not what is important today. This will be one of the biggest fights of my career and I know it'll be a victorious one. I feel that I am at a great place right now and I feel very balanced. I think we shouldn't forget the importance of balance.

"The last few years of life have been great for me as a boxer. I have learned quite a bit about myself and what it takes to win. My fight with Floyd Mayweather will be great and exciting and I know fans desperately want to see it happen. The reaction this fight has gotten has been incredible and the enthusiasm unmatched.

"No one should forget that I am very comfortable at 154 pounds and that will be a huge asset going into this match. Also, there's no doubt I have the power to win this fight. If anything, my power has strengthened. That will make the difference. Fans will also be thrilled to see me land some exciting combinations and ultimately see me emerge victoriously.

"I know Mayweather fans are very insistent that he only wins, but Floyd hasn't fought what he will be fighting come May 5th. On that day, Floyd is going to fight the best opponent he has ever been in a ring with, and the fighter is me. I can't wait for this one."
