"Fans can expect a great show on Saturday night. There haven't been many changes in this camp. I have always had a goal to be one of the greatest fighters of all time and that goal is still there. I have trained hard for a good fight and I am ready.
"Josesito is a hell of a fighter. I'm not taking anything away from him, but right now he is stepping into the wrong den. I will show it Saturday night."
"I just recently started watching tapes. It does make a difference. I used to just let my coach watch, but it does give a clearer idea about what you have to look forward to. Training has been going great. I moved up in weight and it's given me that much more energy. I've had the energy, power, and strength throughout camp to not have to slow down.
"I am at a position where there are bigger things I want to achieve, and that's motivation right there. On Saturday it all starts. On Saturday the smarter fighter will win."
Regarding the Canelo Alvarez vs. Ortiz announcement:
"I find it disrespectful to announce the fight ahead of time, but if anything it gives me more motivation to achieve what I want to achieve. I think (the result) is going to surprise everyone."
