"It's going to be great-finally fighting in my hometown. My Dad is going to come down and be there for the first time at a fight with me. I'm just so excited. This is a great opportunity for me. A lot of people want me to win, especially because I'm the local boy. There is a lot of pressure being undefeated. I just try to ignore the pressure. I'm always trying looking to put on a great show. It's going to be a great show. I'm going to have a lot of friends and family watching. It's going to be a great fight for me and Mike."
