RingTV.com: Do you agree with Roach that Rubio could be your most difficult opponent?
RingTV.com: What skills does Rubio bring to the table — tough chin, power, durability?
RingTV.com: Does anyone you have already fought compare favorably to Rubio in style?
RingTV.com: What was your overall assessment of your knockout over Manfredo?
But I had a great camp and I was able to execute the plan that we worked on during training camp and that is always a good thing.
RingTV.com: Do you see a scenario in which you will be able to box him or do you see a situation in which you will have to stand and fight on occasion?
But I also see myself exchanging punches at some time in the fight, and I always want to give the fans something to get excited about and that they will enjoy.
RingTV.com: If you are victorious, Roach said that he believed that a fight with either Canelo Alvarez or Miguel Cotto would be right for you. Which of the two do you prefer first and why?
RingTV.com: Can you discuss the merits and your desire to face Alvarez?
JCC: Its a big fight in Mexico, and is a fight we both want. I believe that we both are still young, and a fight between us could be bigger later on. But we both are ready for the fight
RingTV.com: Can you discuss the merits of fighting Cotto and your desire to face the Puerto Rican veteran?
JCC: Cotto is a great champion, and it would be a great opportunity for me to face him. Any time we have a Mexican and a Puerto Rican facing each other, it brings the fights to another level. I would love to fight Cotto next.
