"My perfect position for that body shot. I want this fight (vs. Sergio Martinez). I felt great in the ring, he never hurt me. It was an easy fight for me. I want to fight against soon. Any top fighter, any champion, any belt holder....anywhere."
"He's the best I ever fought. He never really let me get started. It was a great shot he landed, the left hook to the body is personally one of my favorites. I tip my hat to him; he's a great champion. He has clubbing, solid power and you can feel the weight of every punch he throws."
"I felt sluggish the first two rounds and then I found my rhythm. I thought I won the fight. I'd give him an immediate rematch if he wanted. I want to come back to fight in America soon and I want to fight Mikkel Kessler."
"I feel good. I absolutely won the fight. I landed the harder punches and out-boxed him. I did everything I had to do, unfortunately, the judges didn't think so. We'll go back to the drawing board and figure out where to go from there."
"I feel great. He's tougher than I thought but I still think I won convincingly. The cuts (both eyes) bothered me but I fought through it. I want to fight all the top 154-pound fighters and this was another step in that direction."
