He talked about his fighting approach while talking on The Pat McAfee show, he said, “That’s just how I am sometimes. I was disappointed in my performance, I felt like I should have went out there and blasted him out in a round. I know I still finished him, finished someone that’s never been finished before.”

Paddy added, “He’s had 11 pro fights, lost one, and never been finished and I choked his a**. He got dealt with like I knew he was going to get dealt with. I said the whole time he’s going to get finished, I thought it was going to be a knockout but he defends punches well, it’s quite weird. He doesn’t like to defend them in a skillful way, but he defends them well and then he just grabs a hold of you.”

“I can fight like that every time. I’m a big, fat bastard at the minute, but if someone rang me now and said, ‘Get outside for a straightener,’ I’d be out there beating them up. I enjoy getting punched and punching people in the face. It sounds very weird, but I enjoy it,” Paddy concluded.
