"Let's hope not. I've prepared very differently for this fight, and I think I'm in way better shape. I hope my body responds Saturday, and we'll prove that. I can't tell right now (about the hand). It's not until I start hitting him that I'll see how my hands fare. But so far, it's good. I'm definitely moving up to 140. Expect an even better Omar at 140."
