"Sergio Mora is a slick fighter. He can slip punches well and he's defensively minded. He's a cagey fighter but he lacks power. He has a lot of defensive flaws and I just have to be patient and take advantage of them.
"We have a game plan in store, but in a pro fight anything can happen. You have to be able to adjust on the fly.
"I have a great team that helps me take care of things so that I can focus on training. I avoid all distractions that would take me away from being at my best.
"Fighting on the PBC cards has been outstanding. I love the intro and coming out on that stage. I felt like a superstar.
"This training camp has been a pleasure, hard work but a pleasure. It was difficult because Sergio is so hard to prepare for. You can't prepare for it with sparring or just one thing. I'm looking forward to showing my true skills and showing what a true champion is."
