"I think I can beat Peterson with my power. I know how to get in the best punches...When they told me that I was coming here to fight, I came here with a mentality to win.

"[On arriving to the United States later than planned] I don't think it's going to have any affect on the fight because I've been training so hard. I'm done training, but I'm still going to move a little bit to keep the weight off. Basically everything is the same other than not coming to the United States on Monday.

"Peterson is a good fighter and a good boxer. He knows how to deal with things when he's in danger.

"I think I can beat Peterson with my power. I know how to get in the best punches.

"[On why he thinks he'll win Saturday night] It's a combination of my will to win and my experience. I've fought some guys with pretty good names.

"When they told me that I was coming here to fight, I came here with a mentality to win. I didn't come here thinking that it's going to be a robbery. Yes, I've had those experiences, but I'm not going to get robbed this time.

"I learned early in my career that I have a good punch and have worked very hard to maintain that.

"Winning this fight will open a lot of doors for me and my career. This might be the most important fight of my career. I want big matchups and this is definitely one of them."
