“After seeing Braun Strowman I really know why he’s got the nickname Monster Among Men, but me being the undefeated lineal boxing champion, I fear no man.

“I’m undefeated in 30 professional contests and when I go to Saudi Arabia to fight Braun Strowman I’m still going to be undefeated because I’m going to knock him out.

“He talks about how good his hands are but he’s messing with a guy who has the best hands in boxing.”
