“It wasn’t personal before; it was business but now it’s personal. I asked for this fight because I hadn’t made serious money like The Contenders. There’s been a lot of trash talking and it’s come to this. He and his father have disrespected me and my coach (Eddie Mustapha Muhammad). I’m coming to fight; I’m coming for him. I’m going to knock him out. That’s what I do. I want to thank my promoter (CES), manager (Warehouse Boxing) and the best trainer in boxing for getting me in this position and this kind of shape. Peter, I’m coming for you.”
