JEFF “LEFT HOOK’’ LACY
“I am tired of all this talk and questions. I am ready for this fight.
“Calzaghe has been a champion for a long, long time and you have to give him his respect. (But I am) from the United States. I was determined to come here to take what's mine.
“I prefer to fight southpaws because they think they have an advantage over me.
“The fight will not go the distance.’’
