How it feels to fight in the WBSS: “This is huge. My last fight was here. My goal was to bring big-time boxing back to New Orleans. Fighting in the World Boxing Super Series for the Ali Trophy, this is a real big deal! I’m excited and I can’t keep saying that. Last time I fought here, it was the biggest show I have ever seen for myself. I think this environment is totally different and I’m super excited.”

On if the pressure is different: “No pressure. The first time I did have a little pressure, and I was a little nervous. I’ve never been to a big fight in New Orleans. I’m going back to being me and having fun fighting.”

On what fight fans can expect: “I don’t know what Flanagan is going to bring. I know he’s a former champion. I’m going to be me and have fun. I’m going to do what I have to do. I can do so many different things. Most people used to say I’m a fast puncher and just throw punches, but don’t have a lot of power, but now people are switching cause I’ve been knocking people out. Really what I feel like doing, I’m going to do. I’m going to go out and have fun. I’m going to go out and show off for the crowd and my hometown.”

On what it will take to beat Regis: “It’s going to be a tough fight. I know I have to beat the favorite to win it. It’s going to be tough, I’m not stupid. It will be a good fight, and we will see what happens Saturday night.”

On what fight fans can expect:  “It will be a great night. Regis is going to bring it from what I’ve been reading in the press the last 24 hours. He’s going to put it on me. I’m expecting a good fight, I feel fit and mentally prepared, and physically prepared. I’m thinking I’m going to do it Saturday night.”
