I'm a fighter who is a counter puncher, and his style is a come forward style, so I think both styles will lead to a great fight. My style, the style that I have, is superior to his style.

Basically, training camp has been waking up early at around six in the morning to go running, and then I'll come back and relax a little bit and prepare myself for the training sessions, sparring, strategy, and what we normally work on. Usually trai[...]

With sparring, we usually go based on someone who is similar to the fighter in order to have the same style – the height and the weight. That's usually what we focus on, to get somebody like that.

This is going to be a very tough fight. There's fights that are difficult and there arefights that are tough. I'm going to prepare 100 per cent and I'm happy to give the fans what they demanded. It motivates me that the fans demanded this fight and [...]

The key is not to stand in front of him and take the punches. I'll have to be smart an elusive and use counter-punches. He's powerful if you stand in front of him.

Tonight I did the best that I could. My body didn't do the things that I wanted to do. That's what happened tonight. I move on from it. 164lbs in five years from 168, I don't feel as strong… I'm staying at 168, that's the best for me and you know I [...]

I wasn't ever hurt. But I was inviting him to open up and exchange so we could give the public a beautiful fight. The preparation, the hard work was done in training and yes of course in the fifth, sixth round I felt a little exhausted but that's no[...]

This chapter is over. I enjoyed the fight, I won the fight, every single round, I had fun and that's what I do. I love boxing. After all these years, after all the talk of who's better, I'm very happy to demonstrate that regardless of the weight, re[...]

There's two things that can happen. Either he loses his cool or he comes out firing with everything. I've never seen him this way. It can help you or it can hurt you. It all depends when that first bell rings, in that ring, it all depends how mental[...]

I'm very happy that he made weight. That proves he worked hard, trained hard and guarantees that we can give the fans a great fight that they deserve. Tomorrow it's for you.

He is not a role model for the young children and the young fighters. And you know what, I've always said, whether I have 1,000, 5,000, 20,000 or millions, I'm very fortunate. I'm very happy and I'm very appreciative of my fans and I'll give them 10[...]

This rivalry goes back about ten years, you know, to our time in Guadalajara. They had the opportunity to make this fight years ago. They had the power to make this fight back then. They didn't want to. My fans know that I started from nothing, from[...]

As a person, I don't know him well, but just from what I hear from his actions and all, it's like a guy that just doesn't sustain what he says. You know, he just says a lot of things. It's almost like he's a little kid.

And obviously a knockout is spectacular, for the fighter, for the fans, and we'll see. We'll see what's going to happen come fight night. I'm going to give it 100 percent to do everything possible to give the fans what they want.

Titles are very important to me but this is above that. This goes above a title, any title. It's for honour, for pride, and it's very important for me. It's also important to keep making history in my career.

He's one more of the 50 of all my opponents that I've faced. I've wanted to rip their head off; I wanted to beat them; I wanted to knock them out. This is a little extra though. There's a little bit more motivation, of course, because of the rivalry[...]

Given the obvious Cinco de Mayo date and the bad blood between the boxers, I think it is safe to say this is the biggest fight in Mexican history.

I feel ready and happy that the fight is only a few days away. I came here to win, not just to fight. Everything has already been said; we've all spoken; and I'm here to win this great fight on Saturday. To give you an idea of how big this event is,[...]

The critics out there are going to use their power to try and make the fight, with good comments or bad comments, or criticising me for the fight not coming across.

We spent 24 days in Miami until we finalised the case. Why do the WBC have to put on a timeline? There's no reason for them to dictate anything in the negotiations for a fight or a fighter, there's the belt but my personal issues were in court, we w[...]

Big fights like this take time, negotiations take time, there are things behind the negotiation table that we need to get together and come across. Especially with the WBC organisation, they wanted to put in a timeline and their rules and input into[...]

It's going to happen, it's a fight that has to happen, I want it to happen, the world wants it to happen. It's just a matter of when it's going to happen, it will happen soon and sooner rather than later. My fans are going to support me through thic[...]
