How many camps have you held in Colorado Springs?

All of my camps as a professional have been in Colorado Springs. It's a good to get away from the stress of home [Cincinnati].

What did you focus on the most during this training camp?

I train hard every day. Every part of training camp is hard. It just got more intense.

Are you doing anything differently for this fight against Rees?

[Starts sneezing] When you say that guy's name I start to sneeze! I think I am allergic to him. I don't do anything different for any opponent. I just do me.

How many people were in Colorado with you?

There were 15 people out there, and it was a hell of a camp. Everyone was working hard. I always have the same people with me.

Any last words on the February 16 fight?

The fight is going to be as sick as the H1N1 [virus].

Broner deserves zero respect. He has no class

Radam G :

Wow! He's a loudmouth KID! And everyone deserves respect. No sense is dumbing down one's self for a "zero." Going down to his level makes two zeroes. And no matter how you count it, that makes you a zero the same. Never judge how a person should act with his fame. We all have a different game. Some are awesome, some are lame. Holla!
