On his Nov. 7 fight with Tim Bradley
"I feel good. I feel ready. I feel ready to fight again. It's been eight months without a fight and I'm ready to fight again."
On his motivation
"It's been eight months, like I said, and I'm ready to get back in the ring. I'm ready to show people that I'm not done yet. I'm young, I still got a lot of gas in my tank, and I'm not done."
On what he feels he has to prove
"That I'm not done yet. They think I'm done. Everybody thinks I'm done, that I'm punch drunk, that I'm a shot fighter. Nah. It's not like that. I'm ready."
On possibly facing Canelo or Cotto
"I'm thinking about Timothy Bradley. I'm not thinking about anything else right now. My concentration and my focus are on Timothy Bradley and that's it."
On Bradley hiring Teddy Atlas
"That's whatever he has going on in his camp. I can't state anything about it. All I know is I'm ready, I'm focused on my being, my half. I'm ready."
On whether he wants the KO
"I'm going out there just to win. Whatever comes, it comes. If it happens, it happens. But I'm there to win. ... You're going to see the Brandon Rios that you would've seen in the third Alvarado fight. You'll see the Brandon Rios that when he first started, people fell in love with. That's what you're gonna see."
