I had no objective to knock him out because my corner pushed me not to do that. In the beginning, I tried to hit him hard, but then I stuck to my job.

The only thing I wanted to do with this fight is to give praise to Jesus Christ.

I have been working so hard since January in preparation for this fight, it took me half a year and I didn’t see my family for so long.

I missed seeing them playing. I want to go home and be happy with my family and I’m not thinking about the rematch.
