DIERRY JEAN, No. 1-Rated IBF Junior Welterweight Contender
"We have over 100 people that have bought ringside tickets. We have made sure that all arrangements have been made for everyone.
"We are doing everything the way we should be as if we are home. We are not here as tourists. We are here to get the job done, to take that belt and go back home with it. But we love Washington, D.C. It is a nice city. People here are very hospitable.
"Look, I am here on a mission to bring that belt back. And having met Lamont, nothing changes.
"I am honored to fight the main event on SHOWTIME. When I started boxing, I was dreaming of this day. I have done all my work to come out victorious and in a very impressive fashion.''
