Lamont Peterson: Without Winning this Fight, There is NO Danny Garcia Fight

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, there's no (Danny) Garcia fight. Even if I win there might not be, so all I can do is focus on Edgar Santana.
"I'm showing my dedication to the sport; there's no time for haircuts or anything. It's 12 hours a day in the gym.
"The average person spars maybe 100-150 rounds max during camp. I'm more of a 400-500 round type of guy. I'm always sparring so any kind of layoff doesn't bother me.
"It's good to see my brother fight. I wish it wasn't on my card because I never get to see him fight. But I'm happy he's in the ring because he loves the sport and it makes him happy.
"There's not a lot of guys you can go to in the 140-pound weight class that are all-time great fighters. My goal is to put my name on that list. Winning all the belts is the way to do it, even though they don't mean that much to me.
"All these years of boxing, no New York fights. Sometimes they say you have to wait for the things you want. I waited 10 years and now I'm here.
