"I don't know (how closesly this fight will resemble the first). Who's to say? ... All I know is that I intend on having it end the same way, with my hand raised. I do like having the bullseye on my back. I like having the belt around my waist and a bullseye on my back. It makes me hungry, keeps me hungry, and I'm excited. I like having those challenges."
