On Jaron Ennis and Vergil Ortiz
“I’m not one of those older guys that gets mad or stuff like that when a younger guy calls them out. That’s what they’re supposed to do because if a Jaron Ennis or a Vergil Ortiz, I saw he just recently called me out, if a lot of these young dudes didn’t call me out, I’d think there’s something wrong with them because when I was young and I was coming up, man, I was calling out everybody.”

“[To become undisputed and then move up in weight] is definitely the plan. That’s definitely the plan. It’s unheard of for a fighter to stay at one weight class his whole career –especially a big fighter like myself. The plan is to definitely move up after I finish what I’m doing at 147.”
