What has been said?


“The thought of returning has been lingering in my mind for the last two years. I want to secure a spot in the Hall of Fame and I believe that there’s more that I can do. I’ve accomplished a lot and I’ve inspired a lot of people. I have more than enough to come back against a young hungry lion like Shane Mosley Jr.

“I’ve always taken on the toughest challenges that can present themselves. I look forward to giving my all and showing what I can still do.

“I’m not fighting for livelihood, I’m fighting for greatness and I’m fighting to leave a legacy. That’s the strongest motivating force there is.

“Sometimes a break is good. Boxing is 80% mental and if your mental is not right going into a fight, sometimes it shows. This lay off has allowed me to get my mind and spirit right. Now it’s just about cementing this latest goal that I set for myself.”


“Training has been going great. I’m blessed to have this opportunity. This is the type of fight that you dream about as a young fighter. You work to get to these moments where you have a big test in front of you.

“Adversity shows the man to himself. You need these moments to define you. This is why we fight.

“My goal is actually to be undisputed middleweight champion, but when you get the opportunity to fight Daniel Jacobs, you don’t turn it down. I could have fought for a title at middleweight, but I couldn’t miss the chance to fight a legend.”
