“To be honest, I think I wanna take some while to recover my body, because I had three fights in 7 months. So I think at the moment I have to take some rest and to think.”

“Yes, I think I have many chance, a big chance in this class because I feel like I’m fast, I feel like, strong for the division. I don’t want to move up to light-heavyweight again.”
