It took Lamon a long time for things to come together so he could be where he is right now. Of all the four champions he's the most talented. Lamon's a real world champion.

It's an honor fighting on his birthday, because of what he did for my idol, my hero, Joe Louis,
Luan is a good fighter who landed many good shots against me. I want to be thee world champion, not just a United States champion and I proved it tonight by coming to Germany and defeating a game challenger. I always fight from will, not always from skill.
