In the later rounds I go to work, that's when I like going to work, that's when I take them out.
"I'm one of the biggest threats in the lightweight division,". "I'll get this one out the way. I have to be smart with this kid. Take him into the later part and try to get him out of there. Then you get Crolla, Crolla's a very good fighter, he's co[...]
"The first three or four rounds, five or six rounds, very dangerous,". "So I have to be smart with this kid. Keep tucked up, make him work, make him pay. I feel like I'm one of the best in the world.

"The other day we did 15 five-minute rounds – circuit training with bags, punching, padwork – with a 30-second breather. In the morning we did a six-mile run, before that we've done sprints with a sledge tied behind us. You sprint up the hill with 4[...]
"I felt like I showed my class in there,". "It is the best performance of my career. I'm maturing now.".
