DANIEL JACOBS

"It'll be against the most experienced guy I've faced thus far. I'm looking forward to testing my challenge against this slick, crafty veteran in Sergio Mora.

 "So there's not a lot of fear as far as power is concerned but where he lacks that he makes up in his craftiness and his slickness and awkwardness and sometimes he does engage in the action as well.

"The test with Sergio Mora is - whether that he can be stopped or whether or not I can go the distance with him, he's never been stopped before, so it will be icing on the cake to be able to not only to defeat him but to stop him in the match.

"I feel like I have a lot more advantages than he does in the fight. But whatever my advantages are and whatever gets me going, will be the deciding factor for me I would stick to. So if it's my speed, then I'll stick to using my speed. If it's my power, backing him down, showing him what a real middleweight feels like, then that's what I would do."

SERGIO MORA

"I think I'm going to be an underdog for this fight again, fighting the younger, stronger champion in his hometown. So defeating him is going to be tough with all the cards stacked against me and that's something that I grown used to and accustomed to.

"This is going to be a really exciting card because he's in his hometown and defending the world title. I'm hungry for that world title and I know that I'm going to have to be extra sharp and do a lot more than just have a close victory in his hometown. So I'm going to have to press action and go out of my comfort zone and I think he's going to have to go out of his comfort zone, which is going to make an interesting fight for everybody.

"I just continue educating people about the sweet science and letting them know that power is not the number one aspect you need to be successful it's your agility, techniques, your defense, body shots, the strategy, it's following that strategy it's hard.

"Like I said, I think he possess everything that I don't. But I have the experience. I think I take a better shot from experience with Danny and I think I follow my game plan more than Danny. A lot of boxers especially a lot of young athletic fighters they go out of their game plan and once they see that it's not working. As a veteran, I know that it's not working initially."
