“When Cotto or any fighter looks at my UStream workouts, they have to say “I can’t watch this.” It will throw their focus off if they watch how hard I work. There’s no fighter that’s dedicated like I’m dedicated. I have the will to win.”
“I’m the reason why they don’t talk about heavyweights anymore.”
“I don’t worry about the (Pacquiao) fight not happening. If it was really all about Pacquiao then i wouldn’t have had to fight 42 other opponents. I’d just fight Pacquiao and become the greatest in the world. But it isn’t just about Pacquiao. It’s about everyone I’ve fought.”
“Manny Pacquiao has done a lot in the sport but he should also be standing behind me to clean up the sport.”
“I try to turn a negative into a positive. When I see my family, my team and fans support me it’s motivation. Going to jail can only make me mentally stronger. This is just an obstacle. Everyone has their good and bad days.”
