“For a while, I was fighting just to prove myself. People thought I couldn’t go five rounds so I go five rounds. Then it is I can’t wrestle, so I wrestle. I’m just trying to prove something in every fight but this one I’m just going out to be myself and dominate.”
“It has been a while; I want to fight and want to compete. I’m going out there looking to be aggressive and looking to finish and test everything he’s about and get that victory.”
