He said of the 144 lb catch-weight contest;
“That’s a good fight. And seeing as you gonna ask me my opinion, I’m a give you my opinion right now. Shawn Porter is a great fighter. He’s a tough fighter, tough for anybody in the ring – he kinda reminds me of myself a little bit but Adrien Broner is an unbelievable talent.”
“He (Porter) knows he’s in a fight, he knows he can’t be relaxed – and when you got a top-notch Adrien Broner? Man, I’m telling you – it’s hard to beat that guy when he top-notch, fully focused and ready.”
On his pick, he said;
“I gotta go with Adrien Broner. I know a lotta people, everybody going with Porter and I understand why. I get it, I totally get it. The pressure, he can get inside and rough ’em up – I understand that – but when it comes down to the sweet science, I have to go with my man Broner because (of) skills. The kid has skills, man – and when he 110%, he a problem for everybody.”
