"When I was offered the fight with Marquez, I was thinking positively. I know I am going to beat him, there was never a doubt in my mind."
"I have learned a lot from my loss to Barrera, I won't let my emotions get the best of me."
"I think once we start exchanging punches, Marquez is going to know that he will have to be on the defensive."
"We're looking forward to going in the ring and banging punches."
"I've stood next to Marquez, and he is not that much taller than me. I think that people are underestimating my boxing skills."
"I surprise a lot of fighters when I get in the ring. After the fight when they talk to me, they say “I did not think you could hit me from that far outside.’"
"Marquez will be surprised when we step into the ring come Saturday night on SHOWTIME."
"For those people who doubt me, and say this will not be my fight, they are wrong. I am very confident and sure that this is my time. This is the same feeling I had when I competed in the Olympics. It’s just a natural feeling."
