WE have a unique opportunity right in front of us. We have a chance at history and to cement a legacy for my fighter [Andre Berto].
What is the key to winning this fight? [Berto] has got to want to win. He has to want it more. He holds the keys in his hand. You can plan as much as you want for tomorrow, but we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. We can only prepare.
If [Berto] wins this fight, you’ll see me jumping up and down and it will be hard to compose myself. I’m usually pretty composed, but you might see me jump up and fall out of the ring and hit my head or something.
No matter what happens, Floyd Mayweather will always be considered one of the best ever. Win or lose, his legacy is cemented.
There are similarities between Floyd and Andre Ward. They both started boxing as young boys, and were Olympians and are undefeated. There’s a lot of pressure that comes with being undefeated and they both have faced that.
It’s not fair to the fight game to say this is a free shot and to go in there and say we have nothing to lose. We have everything to lose.
