“Sometimes if I’m chasing the right hand or I’m chasing the left hook, it may come crashing down.

“And I realised that chasing that fight wasn’t playing into my benefit, so I’m just gonna let the path take its course.

“I’ve got great people managing me, I’ve got a great team, and when the opportunity presents itself to become undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, you know me by now, I’ll definitely step up and take the challenge.”
