"Anything is tough when you have a lot of things coming your way. I have tunnel vision. It's fight time. I'm locked-in until I get the job done. Friday night is going to be a big night. I'm going to keep my promise. I will stop Ashley Theophane. I don't care which round it is, but I will stop this man.
"I love DC. The crowd and the love on Friday night is going to be crazy. I took this camp to the max. I am going to exploit and showcase all of my talent. This is a big night for my little brother and protégé, Robert Easter Jr. He doesn things that amaze me. I know what he's capable of. I'm happy for him to get this chance against a former world champion. It's going to be a heated matchup. This whole card is stacked from the top to the bottom.
"I stepped up early in my career. I stepped up earlier than others. When I fought (Daniel) Ponce De Leon, I was 19 and I fought in front of a crowd of 12,500 against me. I just want to get home to Cincinnati and hold my baby daughter for the first time. I want to hold and hug my kids and be the family guy. Right now I'm at work. I have to do what I have to do, but after pain its pleasure."
"It's been a journey. But we're here now. Just two days away. We've got two days and then the champ and me are going to go to war. I'm here to make this happen. Broner can play games, it's all good. I'm here on a mission. I'm ready. We're so close and I really just can't wait to hear that bell.
"Adrien says he's going to stop me. I don't think he has the attributes to do that. But it does mean it's going to be a great fight. I'm looking forward to it. The hard work is done. We've been training for months. My trainer Nate Jones has helped to get me into great shape. We have a great game plan and we're ready to go.
"I want this man to live up to his words that he's going to stop me before round four. Because that means he will be standing and fighting instead of running around the ring. A win means everything to me. It changes my life. This is my boyhood dream. This could lead me to all the other big names. I've trained for 12 hard rounds. We're going to do this."
