“He fought a guy who has a terrific history (Wlodarczyk). He’s done a lot but at the end of the day his opponent tonight was old. Now he’s going to fight someone (in me) who is similar to him. This is the fight that the fans – the world wants to see. I’m going to train very hard. I’m going to prepare extremely intense to put on an explosive performance. Take a good vacation (speaking to Gassiev through a translator) because I want to prepare the right dosage for you of anesthesia and ibuprofen for the next fight (with me) so the pain is less!”
