"I told everybody (Fonfara) is strong. He's been training since December. He is ranked No. 1 and No. 3 in the world. He was ready for this fight. I never overlooked him because he's a tough fighter."
"I accept any challenge. Bernard can be next. And I have no problem with Kovalev. If I fight him I fight him."
"I survived because I have the heart to fight. Every time he hit me I felt the punch. Tonight Stevenson is better. I'm still young. I'm only 26 years old. I'm training hard and one day I'll be a world champion."
"I knew Fernando Guerrero is a very strong fighter. Very tough. He's been down many times and always gets back up. Once I started to land my shots I could see it in his eyes that the game started to change.
"The results in the ring are from my dedication and my training. I want to tip my hat to Fernando Guerrero. He is a great fighter. I studied him for many months prior to the fight. So I am very happy with the outcome."
"I'm determined to be a world champion. I would love to fight anyone in the world at 160."
"To me, I slipped. I didn't feel the solid shot. He hit me with the right hand. He just caught me off balance. But it is what it is.
"This was a rough one. I did what I had to do tonight."
