On fighting in his first main event on ESPN...
"I'm very thrilled to be fighting in my first main event on ESPN because I know many boxing fans from around the world will be tuning in.  I feel I bring an exciting style to the ring that the fans will enjoy.  It's fights like this, on a major TV network like ESPN, that take your brand to another level.  So the goal is to perform at my best ability and bring even more excitement to the featherweight division."

On his matchup with Ryan Kielczweski...
"Kielczweski is a very tough opponent.  He's a very good boxer with a tremendous amount of skill.  He only has one loss, which was a split decision, so to me, he could easily be an undefeated fighter. With that being said, I know I have to be at my best."
