I'm gonna do whatever it takes to win – period. I believe in myself. I'm a different commodity to [Golovkin's] other opponents. Different mindset, different skill level.
I'm really a boxer, I've just become known as a knockout artist with all my stoppages.

"In addition to having Andre Rozier as my trainer, bringing aboard Chris Algieri was a great addition. He's able to help with my nutrition plus he's fought on the biggest stages in the biggest fights which helps me". "I don't know how hard he punche[...]
"No rematch,". "There's no reason for me to go backwards now. I trained hard for this fight. It didn't come out the way he wanted to but I'm not going to give him the rematch just 'cause. I did what I was supposed to do. I stopped him as I predicted[...]
