I had been a little out of shape before taking the fight so I had to lose some pounds. But that doesn’t matter. I am used to stuff like this. All that matters now is what happens in the ring. I will take this guy to school and give him a good beating that’s for sure.“

But obviously that hasn’t helped him to show up on weight. We’ll see what happens tomorrow. I am ready to face my biggest challenge so far. I don’t know if I can beat him but I can guarantee that I will give him a hell of a fight."
