"It's a major fight for a lot of reasons, but, you know, I really, honestly approach every fight the same way. Every fight to me has the same intensity, the same urgency in my preparation, and I think that's a major key to being successful. So this is a big fight, but we've been in situations like this before, we've been in big fights before, and I'm just looking forward to performing and doing what I'm trained to do.

"I'm not going to be intimidated by some smirks or stares or words, or whatever. I've been boxing over half my life. I've seen a lot. I've been involved in a lot within this sport. It kinda is what it is, but it's great for the fans. I love it, and this is what it's all about.

"This is my favorite time before a fight, two, three days before, because press conferences are over, all we've got left is the weigh-in, and then it's go time.

"If you're not ready at this point, you've got a problem. I'm ready, I know they're ready, there should be no excuses at the end of this fight."
