"I'm looking for a smart fight, but for sure I'll knock him out."

"I've fought southpaws and taller guys in the past and I didn't have problems with them. I think it will be a good fight but I won't have any problems with him."

"I'm looking for bigger fights - I'm looking to move up to 122 (pounds) to fight the bigger guys after I beat him."

"I love southpaws - he fits my style. I'll go to the body and the head and destroy him slowly before the knockout. But I will knock him out, 100 percent."

"I'm an exciting fighter. I'll go after him and knock him out."

"I want to go higher and higher. I think this will be my last fight at 118. I just want to fight the best and fight for titles."
