He's a smart guy, but I think I'm a genius.
If you try your best, you can always be better.
I was one of those kids that was always picked on but, one thing I gotta say it that no matter how bad your life gets, there's always a bright light out there and you gotta find it.
I'll help out in ways to inspire others and ways to get people together and bring about things to help people financially.
I believe that he's a boring fighter.
Whatever happens, I train hard for the fans and their support.
My style is like Bruce Lee, I'm like water. It's everything from defensive, to counters, to offense.
I was taught to fighter like Sugar Ray Leonard and Muhammad Ali when I was growing up.
Always push beyond what you can do.
He's going for the home run, I'm going for the grand slam. If he gets a lot of strikeouts, I'm getting a shutout. I just have that positivity, that mentality that I can conquer whatever he gives out.
When you do your best, there is no impossibility.
I'm training everyday, even though I should be resting.
I seek to fight the best out there. I seek to fight the champions in every division I go up to.
If he wants to box we'll box. If he wants to brawl we'll brawl.
Growing up, I kind of adopted that mentality, going all out, being a warrior.
Seeing the Mexican fighters, it gave me, physically and mentally, ready for an all our war.
We put our body and minds and lives on the line for being in that ring for the fans, that's why I respect fighters. Unless they don't respect me then I can't give any respect back.
I just wanna live the moment and just take every moment and embrace it because life is short.
I'll bring a flower out there and then give them a peace sign and hopefully they'll make it happen.
I need to take a punch in order for me to throw that hook.
He said it's an honor to fight me, well I say that it's an honor to fight him as well.
My father and I, we finally saw each other eye to eye and I think he's seeing me as a man, and I'm seeing him as the father he's always been.
Not only did I win the fight, but I won something that's more than a fight could ever give me and that is gaining back a family.
He's such a great kid and such a determined kid, and he's so strong.
Criticism is good, you learn from it each time and you know that people are paying attention.
You can't look good everytime, even if you try to no matter what.
I wanted to bring that old school mentality of "Fight Me!, Fight me!"
As much as I have respect for him, this is for the crowd. The crowd didn't deserve what happened tonight.
I enjoy singing, I enjoy music as much as I enjoy photography, doing filming and stuff like that. I do a lot of things to express who I am.
I lived my life where I didn't have anything. I lived my life where people picked on me. Now that I am in a different light, I appreciate every moment of it.
The motivation is in my heart to work toward my goals and my dreams.
For punches I never really choose, I take whatever opportunity is given to me. If it's a left, I'll take it. If it's a right I'll take it.
Confident fighters are dangerous fighters. I know that. But there other fighters who said before a fight they were stronger than me, hit harder, were going to knock me out. Walters is a good champion but...
