Here is what the fighters needed to mention Sunday out of MGM National Harbor in Maryland:
“it was very essential to resist at home due to this ’s what everyone has been requesting. I’m so excited to have the chance and I could ’t even wait to step in the ring.
“All of my battles are classics. I know that ‘JRock ’ has been watching me and which makes him dangerous. He’s forthcoming in with a fantastic game plan and we’ll see what it is really on fight night.
“Jermall Charlo can be just a huge puncher and he also landed some shots that got Julian out from there, however, Julian was right into that struggle. It was kind of forward and backward action until Charlo landed the shots, but Charlo was hurt in that struggle too.
“The fighter that I am, I wanted to really go out there and close to the series against Erislandy Lara. I presumed I was upward, but it’s maybe not in me to go out and survive. I’m glad I did because it made me the win.
“& I ’m definitely going to be more successful on May 11. I’m looking for a decisive win. I’m not saying that I ’m definitely going to to get the stoppage, but it’s going to be persuasive it moved my way.
I’m planning to really go after the WBC belt regardless of who has it, but I have to take care of Julian. ”
“I’m not Erislandy Lara, I’m definitely going to fight a completely different struggle than he did. I’m definitely going to do whatever I have to do in order to win. That’s the kind of fighter Hurd is, in order that’s the kind of fighter I’ve to be.
“” I believe I’m planning to acquire in a classic.
“My motivation really are those 2 straps at stake. Any kind of struggle with Harrison or Charlo and Hurd has nothing todo with me personally. I’m centered about what I have to do.
“I needed to get over the reduction quickly. You are able to ’t even dwell about that. Am I really going to mope? I am ’t put it in to words how hungry I am.
“Hurd is undoubtedly a very exciting fighter. He supplies that extra each struggle, but that I ’t seen some matters. I’ve got a style of wearing guys down myself. I used Nathaniel Gallimore down fighting my front and I believe I’ll do exactly the exact same into Hurd.
“I don’t even understand if there’ll be extra pressure on him fighting home. You have to inquire. I understand when I struggle in home I don’t even feel any additional pressure. When the bell rings, a struggle is a struggle. ”
