"I'm going to have to go for the knockout this time, I have no choice. Floyd's defense is very good and at times it is hard to hit him. That's why I want to knock him out.
"First, I'm going to give him a beating and then I'm going to knock him out. It's going to be hard to get a decision because he connects well and knows how to score points.
"I'm going to make some technical adjustments, work on my distance and always pressure him. Our camp last time was great, but we just need to make minor adjustments to get the win.
"Floyd is trying to get under our skin, but it's not going to work. We're going to do our fighting in the ring and this time we're going to win.
"Floyd is trying to make us lose our cool. He's trying to make us angry so we break concentration. He does it on purpose because he wants to have the upper hand. But his comments don't affect me at all.
"Floyd can say whatever he wants about me. He knows that I gave him the toughest fight of his life. The only difference is this time I will knock him out.
"This will be a different fight. He knows what I bring to the table and he knows how I fight. I don't want to leave any doubt whatsoever. To beat a champion like Floyd you have to knock him out.
