"He is ranked number one pound-for-pound on the planet so for me to fight a guy like that only encourages me more to be the best that I can be, and it is exactly the level that I want to be at. I'm well aware of how good he is and what he is capable of doing, but I'm also well aware of what I can do and what I'm going to do.
"I think that I can knock out anyone that I hit right, I believe that I am one of the biggest punchers in the lightweight division. This is going to be the toughest fight of my life and I'm preparing for it, physically and mentally. This is Luke Campbell's year, it's my time."
