He is tall enough and I cannot see over him. I just want to take care of business. This is going to be a great fight. Do not blink..

"For me to fight for the world heavyweight title is a dream. This has been an awesome experience already. I am fighting a guy who beat Wladimir Klitschko, so I know I am fighting a great fighter. Win, lose or draw, I hope fans see that I am a good fighter and deserving of this fight.''
