“The competitors are going to be tough. But I’m going as hard as I possibly can. I’m not holding anything back. I want to put on a good show and I want to finish the fight. I don’t want it do go three rounds.”

“This is going to be my last amateur fight so I’m really looking forward to a good hard fight, a battle. I want to grow a lot in this fight, I want to learn as much as I can from this guy, he’s pretty good. So, put my chin down and you’re going to see a good fight.”
