At the end of the day, I feel like me and Keith Thurman is the fight to make. A lot of people bring up Terence Crawford since Keith Thurman's been inactive.
I still have to unify my division and basically become the undefeated welterweight champion of the world. I can't lose. It is more added pressure, but it does make me work harder and keeps me more focused.
I am ready for a title unification fight with Keith Thurman and hope to be ready before too long for a move up to light-middleweight to meet Canelo Alvarez.
I want Keith Thurman. He has two of the belts, and we both have big names. It's an easy fight to make, and I want it.
Putting up a great performance against Lamont Peterson will skyrocket me. The goal is to become the No. 1 welterweight in the division, so if I keep beating these guys around me and then fight Keith Thurman, people will rate me as No. 1 because I've beat the top names, and he's been inactive.
Shawn Porter is a good fighter, but he hasn't accomplished nearly as much as Danny Garcia has accomplished or beat the fighters who he has beat.
