. . . this isn’t a straightforward problem that I’m accepting. I imply I’m going on the market and dealing with a man that numerous their favourite fighters are ducking and fearing. This man is the boogey man and I’m going as much as problem him at 135-pounds, his weight, and I’m planning on going on the market and stopping him.

And Devin Haney, he’s at his prime proper now and I’m at my prime. I’m 28 years previous and I really feel like I’m in my prime . . . Devin Haney was saying, ‘Jo Jo Diaz was a bum,’ I suppose as a result of he had seen all of the interviews. Don’t get me incorrect, he is an effective fighter. I simply communicate nothing however reality and information. Devin Haney is one hell of a fighter however he hasn’t overwhelmed anyone to be a prime, prime primary fighter at 135-pounds!”
