On how training camp has gone

"This training camp we've trained hard, and we did a lot of things that we didn't usually do. Especially Justin (Fortune) is back, so we did a lot of things we don't usually do. I'm happy with this training camp."

On Bradley's sock story

"Well...I have to prove it again in the ring on the 12th. ... I have no comment, but, I have to prove it again on Saturday, April 12."

On whether or not he gets nervous before fights

"I'm excited. I'm excited because God is behind me."
