6I don’t talk, I throw punches man.



7I got a pennant from the police department, no more tickets anymore around here so if I run a stop sign it’s alright.


8I think world titles are great and everything, you know they’re huge accomplishment, but I don’t think it constitutes to being the best fighter.


9I call that hating. That’s straight hating. I moved up two weight classes, I was off for a year and a half, had a shoulder surgery, come on dude that’s hating.” – Responding to his critics

11I’m a little sad that he got to him before I did.” – On Garcia’s victory over Khan

14God willing, this victory will take my name through the roof. That’s what all these top fighters pound-for-pound best fighters in the world are just looking for. Guys that have a big name, so they’re not really looking for the guys that can really fight.

15I knew Berto had a soft chin. I knew I could put him down.



16I’m happy I had that one fight in with Aydin who was a tough guy. Tough rough guy where he hit me in the back of the head like crazy, shoulders, wherever it was, buttcheeks, wherever he was hitting me, so those are the tough fights and I like them.

17He said the last fight, he wasn’t very impressed that I didn’t carry power but like I said before, it’ll be better if I didn’t knock him out cos’ I can beat him down for 12 rounds.” – On Andre Berto

18I’ve been in with a fighter who has been on steroids and it ain’t no joke.



19The California State Athletic Commission assured me that they’re going to step their game up. Working with UCLA, their drug testing and they’re going to take care of business. That’s what makes me real happy and very comfortable going into this fight, being able to just focus on what I got to do and not have to worry about him being sauced up.” – On the run up to his fight with Andre Berto

20Berto did hit hard, but he didn’t hit nowhere near as hard as Aydin did. Aydin was a hard puncher. Wherever he hit me, it hurt. I was walking through (Berto’s) shots.

24Bring your 0, I’ll smash it!” – On Adrien Broner



25As you saw tonight, I’m not gonna run from a guy just because he’s got power. I’m gonna let him know, too. If there was probably about 10, 15 more seconds, I think Berto would have been out in that 12th round.

26He’s never fought a lefty like me either. The toughest lefty he’s fought was Victor Ortiz and he’s a one-dimensional fighter who don’t have good footwork and is very stiff in the ring. Can’t change styles and does the same things over and over.” – On Andre Berto

27While my wife was sick, I was sleeping on hospital floors, taking care of my children, working side jobs at the same time because everyone knows a boxer’s living is through his fights.
