"I know very, very little about the man," Rogers said. "What I know is what I’ve heard on the Internet, but it’s nothing that makes me prepare any differently. I understand the one thing about this sport is that you have to take every man you face seriously and I totally understand that.
"I prepare as hard as I can for every fight. I understand from what I’ve seen that he’s the No. 1 heavyweight in the world. I respect that and I respect him for what he’s accomplished. But I’m not intimidated or worried about fighting him. This is what I do. He’s just my next opponent."
