Talking about the fight, he said, “I got caught up in the moment, that was the time when I didn’t have any thoughts about Winning or Losing. I didn’t listen to my coaches for those important 15 mins of the match. It felt so loud it was bananas inside there and I was all lonely in the ring but I did care about the fans and they won as per my side.”

DC asked him about his injuries, and he said, “It feels nice, but till Wednesday it feels worst, your injuries start paining. I have injuries in both my legs, foot so ya… but face it’s the best part, I can do it with some black and red color and it looks fantastic. It was more the body pain that I was in about the first two weeks. But I did lots of recovery stuff lot of manual bodywork, a hyper bird chamber, and my body feels great now I am about to get back to training.”
