"I've just come off of 10 weeks of training camp and in camp I worked with a guy who is bigger than Gabe [Gabriel Gonzaga], so he will actually be a step down for me. But with any of the bigger athletes, I have to be smarter and use my head.... I have one more week of hard training, and then I start to taper for the fight. But right now I feel good, and I am ready to go.... I think this fight has the potential to go all five rounds. I am prepared to go all five rounds. But I don't expect either one of us to make mistakes, so it's going to be a tough, competitive fight."
