Training camp is going well. I feel strong. Ready to go. Ready for a dominant opponent in Carlos Abregu..

I’m used to fighting big guys. I’m going to feel Abregu’s power. In the beginning, I am sure he will have heavy hands. Then I will take it from there.

I don’t want to get hit by any heavy shots. For me to win this fight it comes down to fighting smart and not getting over confident.

I trained to go 12 hard rounds. I’m not a knockout puncher but anything can happen. A KO would be amazing.

Abregu is a dangerous fighter.

I am finally on the big scene now. I worked my way from the backyard to a bigger audience.

These fights that I am fighting are meant to open up doors. Before it was hard getting a fight at 140 pounds.

I want to fight the best fighters in the world. I understand that boxing is a business so I know that I have to fight them all and I am willing. I’ll fight Devon Alexander, I’ll fight Amir Khan, I’ll fight Marcos Maidana, I’ll fight Victor Ortiz. I’ll fight any guys.

Devon Alexander… That’s a guy I want. He has made all kinds of false accusations, saying I “feared him.” I’ll go to St. Louis to fight him if I have to. If it works with the business, let’s make it happen.

I’ve got a promotional and management team, they know what’s best.

I’d fight Pac Man or Floyd. If I can get into the ring with them I’ve accomplished what I needed to in boxing.

Floyd Mayweather is the best fighter in the world and he could drug test me all he wants. The only thing in me is my GOD-given talent. He can test me all he wants.

I feel I am ready for a fight with Mayweather or Pacquaio.

Everybody’s beatable. Everyone can be touched. Those four corners can close in on you. Mayweather has big fight experiences as his advantage and I have my youth.

Pac Man is a monster too. Both these fighters are the best. Pac Man’s a speedster. A fight against him would be fireworks.

They can take me out to the deep water, I’m ready. I’ve got a big will to win. It’s fun to talk about it but it would be a lot more fun to be in the ring with either one of them.

My team has been pushing me and boosting me into the pound for pound Top-10.
Bob Arum has excuses. My job is to continue to win. Boxing fans want to see fights and I know that Pac Man or Mayweather will need dancing partners and I’m waiting.

I was frustrated when the Maidana fight fell out so I checked with my manager Cameron Dunkin and he said we would move to the original plan of fighting Carlos Abregu.

I just want to win, As long as I get a victory, I’ve done my job.

Amir Khan is the most protected fighter at 140 pounds. He’s a good fighter. I don’t know what he is afraid of.

For Abregu, I just need to keep my left hand up and stay smart. Sometimes I let my heart get in the way and I get over aggressive. I need to stay poised to win the fight. I need to stay smart and not get reckless.

I have a lot more energy. I don’t feel like I have been training for a fight. I’m not tired. I’ll have even more energy come fight night.

I feel strong at 147 pounds. I feel a little slower but a lot stronger up at top. I feel like getting on the inside and fighting.

I normally walk around at 160-165 pounds. For fight night I will be at no more than 150 – 151 pounds.

After focusing on this fight, I’ll see if I can get a good fight at 147…Berto, Maidana, possibly… But for now my focus is on Abregu.


I have kept up my same routine as I would with any fight. I’m working hard. The only thing that has changed in training camp is I brought in Daryl Hudson, my strength and conditioning coach.

With Daryl’s training I feel great strength in my legs and arms. I’m also much faster now.

I plan to pressure Alcine in the ring. I’m going to force him to fight. Alcine runs in the ring but all fighters do.

I have kept up my training since my last fight.

I am able to eat what I would like because I train so hard.

Alcine is a great fighter. He has only one defeat and that was against a great fighter.

After Alcine, I don’t have a preference. I’ll fight whoever can give me a great fight.

Everyday when I am at the gym I try to learn and do something different. The day a fighter says he knows it all is the day he is in trouble.
