“That’s how you know you’ve made it. That’s the power of dreams. I’m going to fight my idol, nothing more.
“I have more than what it takes. My heart and mind are my main characteristics. People will realize that it’s Saturday night and I’m here to show the fans.
“I’ve been in a lot of big fights, but I guess you could call this a big fight. It’s going to be all work.
“I have thoughts of Mamba. Kobe beat Pau Gasol, his teammate with the Lakers, when he was with Team Redemption in the Olympics. I carry that same drive with me, that killer instinct.
“Phoenix is an amazing city, I feed off its energy. I can hear the buzz and it inspires me.
“I want to take him out in the first 5 rounds. That’s the goal.”
“This is two generations coming together to do something amazing. I feel very lucky.”
“I can control what I do in my training, but I don’t worry about what I can’t do. I continued to focus with a positive mindset. I try to keep doing this for myself. I do it because I love it.
“I am doing this for myself, my fans and my team with the respect of the people of the world in the field of boxing.
