On Preventing Slow Start In Last Fight From Happening Again: "Stay focused. What happened, I think I wanted to get off to such a quick start because when we were in the center of the ring before the fight I saw that his eyes were all over the place, I thought he was scared and nervous. I tried to get a quick stoppage because of that instead of staying focused and sticking to the game plan that my coaches came up with. I tried to bum rush him out of there and then after the first two rounds I felt like I was able to take over the fight. Now I'm looking to get in there, stay focused and take it one round at a time."
On Deserving Title Shot If Victorious: "I think so, beating former title contenders like Artur Szpilka and Iago Kiladze and now fighting a former world champion, what else could be next? I mean a title shot has got to be around the corner."
Prediction: "I want to win and I want to do it in high fashion to earn my title shot. He's only been stopped once by Anthony Joshua. I'll try to make it an early night, but I know it could be a tough fight. I'm in good shape, in good spirits, but I definitely want a stoppage though."
