"Camp has been tremendous. I've pushed my body to a new level. I'm in great condition. We're just waiting for the 29th.
 
"I always try to add to my game in training camp. I'm trying to perfect my craft. Defense is one thing you can never have too much of.
 
"I want to make someone miss and make them pay. I'm focused on my balance and being aggressive.
 
"I've always been an intelligent fighter. I'm trying to stay two or three steps ahead of my opponent. I want them to adjust me. I can let my skill dictate the action.

"Get your popcorn early because you're going to see everything in the ring, you never know what you'll see.

"The main thing I'm looking for is the win. I have to respect each guy in front of me and if the knockout comes, I'll take it.
