GL: How is everything going in preparation for your October 14 bout with Erislandy Lara? Everything has been good in camp, I can honestly say this is my best camp yet. GL: Have you been doing anything differently during camp for your first world title fight? Of course, I'm pushing it a little harder. This is a world title fight so I've got to step it up.
GL: What are your thoughts of Lara as a fighter?
Terrell Gausha: "I don't really think too much about him, but I know he's a crafty sharp fighter. I know he's got a lot of experience so I'm going to have to bring my A game when it's fight time."
GL: Have you studied him at all?
TG: "Of course. You've always got to check your opponents out. It's our job to know what they bring."
GL: What weaknesses do you see in him that you're going to be able to take advantage of on the 14th?
TG: "To be honest, I've got to show that on the 14th. My saying what I see would be me giving it up. There's things that we're working on and things that I've seen that we're looking to take advantage of."
GL: Other than victory do you have a prediction?
TG: "I've never been big on predictions, but my main thing is I'm going to find a way to win. I'm going to be able to make adjustments in there and I'm definitely going to be strong. I'm always looking for the knockout, but if it doesn't come then I'm look forward to winning decisively."
GL: I think a lot of people would agree that Lara isn't the weakest of current junior middleweight champs. How do you feel about challenging for your first world title against likely the best junior middleweight in the world?
TG: "To be honest, I like them challenges. I always want the tougher fights. If I get the option to fight two different opponents, I'm always going to take the toughest one because that's what says a lot about the fighter. I always want the tough fights because when I win tough fights like this it leads to me becoming the head honcho in the division."
GL: What would becoming the WBA super champion mean to you?
TG: "It would mean the world to me. I've been working towards this goal to be champion since I first laced up a pair of gloves at ten years old. I just turned 30 this year so it's been a long road, but we're here now."
GL: Is there anything you'd like to say in closing?
TG: "I just want to tell the fans that I'm coming prepared as always and I appreciate all their support. On October 14th they can look forward to an exciting show and I'm going to put it on him."
