I am 100 per cent the underdog and I know I am. But that is what I want, I wouldn't have it any other way. It is something that is a fact; he is a world champion and I am a challenger. Nine times out of ten the challenger is going to be the underdog[...]
I am expecting the best Arthur Abraham that there has ever been. I am ready for the best Arthur Abraham and I am going in there against a man who I believe will defend his belt like and demon and who I believe will treat me like Andre Ward, and anyt[...]
