“I am prepared mentally and expect everything and am ready for it. Now all I have to do is wait a few more days for the fight to happen.
“I have no pressure. I believe all the pressure is on him to maintain and stay number one. This is a motivation for me to train harder, to run longer, faster. The hard part is done. The easy part is performing and that is the fun part.
“I try not to think about everything, my concern is giving it my all. I can live with that and I am prepared to leave it all in the ring.
“I have fought at swap meets and parking lots, and to be at a place like Madison Square Garden on HBO Pay-Per-View this is a dream come true for me. I want to do the best I can do to make this fight entertaining for all the fans.”
