ANTHONY PETERSON, Lightweight Contender
"I always had the hunger to fight, even during my layoff. I never stopped watching boxing, I never stopped being hungry because boxing is in my blood.
"I wanted to walk away from boxing plenty of times; after the (Brandon) Rios fight I wanted to walk away. But after all these years, I'm built for this and it reminds me to stick with it.
"In my 34 fights I've never asked about who I'm fighting, I just show up and show off.
"I see myself as a world champion. All I got to do is stay healthy, stay in shape and it will happen by the end of the year. Anyone in the lightweight division is an…
LAMONT PETERSON, IBF Junior Welterweight World Champion
"Each fight out I try to get better and better, I add new things to my camp. I'm focused more on my craft. I'm not a fighter who wins a belt and will be satisfied with that. I want to get better each fight.
"I've seen Edgar Santana fight; he can definitely fight. People haven't seen him so they don't think he deserves it. But he's been around for a while and still fighting. It's a tough task to stay in this game for 10 years.
"Camp has gone well. I'm feeling really good right now. I'm confident, there's nothing else I can do in this camp. I'm ready.
"Without winning this fight,…

Here we go again, it seems like each time Floyd Mayweather has a fight approaching, some past his prime entertainer wants to use Mayweather's fame, to boost their dwindling careers. Nelly ten years ago was one of the rap games most highest selling rap artist with only Eminem ahead of him his 'Country Grammer' and 'Nellyville' albums are two of the most successful rap albums of all-time. Then came the bad albums, bad investments, bad spending habits, now Nelly has to use other famous people names to boost himself back into the spotlight, which is tragic for an artist of his former stature.
In May of this year it was rumored that Nelly was seeing Floyd Mayweather's former fiance Shantel Jackson, then photos where released of the two together and courtside at…Continue
Can you talk about just the general frustration, if that's the right word, that you've had given what happened with injuries?
Yes, it's been very, very frustrating for me. I've been in line for this title before, and injuries caused the delay. I've been on the back burner and trying to keep fighting in between. I'm onto a new chapter now, and here we are. I think Devon Alexander gave Shawn Porter a tough fight and then Shawn looked good in his defense against (Paulie) Malignaggi. He took care of him, which no one has done before. He's proven that he's a worthy champion. Here we are again. I think I'm more than ready. I've been training very hard for this fight, and as the records show, I'm 32-0. That's what I like to do, is win, and I'm coming over there and giving it my…Continue
