I’VE been dreaming about coming here and fighting in the U.S. since I was a kid. You dream about fighting where all your favourite fighters came to perform on the big stage. To do it here in New York is special. It’s an iconic place and so many great world champions have come from here.

I’m not a true super-middleweight so I’m excited to be fighting at 160-pounds. I’m going to be a beast. I’m going to be an absolute savage. The power and the speed is going to really shine through against guys my own size.

Anyone with a belt in the middleweight division, I’m coming for them. If that means Charlo, I’ll be more than happy to get in there with him.
