I came up short tonight. I gave it my all. I thought I was the aggressor and I won the fight but it is what is. I thought I pushed the fight like a true champion.
"I've been in a lot of big fights, so I can't psych myself out. On March 4 I'm going to show the world again why I'm a real champion". "I think I have a lot of advantages. One of them is that Barclays Center is like a second home. I'm the sharper, m[...]

It takes a lot of discipline. It's usually hard work for 10 weeks straight waking up every day, doing the same thing, sweat, blood, tears, all that stuff.
I believe right after the Matthysse fight I wanted to move up. I felt like that was a perfect time for me to move up because I beat the best 140-pounder at that time. I had beaten Khan and then I came back and beat Erik Morales and Matthysse.
For the first time in a long time, I could worry about training to get better and not training to lose weight. I've been fighting at 140 my whole career.
I just feel felt like losing the weight was affecting my performances, mostly in the later rounds of big fights because I will use a lot of my energy losing weight. I've been feeling a lot stronger and a lot better at 147.
I beat two of the best 140-pounders, so I feel like it's time for me to go up to 147. But they had different plans for me. Me and my team, we decided to stay at 140 for a little longer to see how it played out. I just wasn't fully strong at the weig[...]

"The same with Lamont Peterson, he can't look past Edgar Santana. At the end of the day, we've both got to get these victories and at the end of the year or the beginning of next year we could do a unification bout,"
"At the end of the day, it's what I want [a fight with Peterson] because I can say what I want, but you know, right now, I've got August 9, so I can't look past anybody,"
"I've got to go in there and be smart. I can't make mistakes. I've got to stay sharp. I've got to stay composed. I've got to work on my jab, I've got to move my head and I've got to go in there and seek and destroy and look like a champion,"
