Fights with Brandon Rios, Andre Berto, Lamont Peterson and Marcos Maidana are fighters I want to face. I want to fight the best of my era.
Best and worse thing about the boxing game?
The boxing politics and corruption is definitely the worst part of boxing. Your hard work paying off is the best thing about boxing. There is no feeling like being successful at what you do.
How do you deal with your pre-fight nerves?
I don’t do fight nerves. It is pointless and a waste of energy. That is why I train so hard. When I get in the ring I have faith in my ability so I expect to win barring some controversy.
Best friend in Boxing?
Dmitriy Salita, Ajose Olusegun and Francisco Figueroa are my best friends in boxing. I have met countless others who have been there for me and supported me through testing times.
What rule would you introduce/change in Boxing if you could?
Only one world champion in each weight weight class. There are too many champions with this super, regular and interim champions.

I enjoy watching Ironman and Triathlon competitions. It is amazing what the human body can push itself through. The mind is so important and when we push our boundaries, the possibilities are limitless. Swimming and Tennis also interest me.
