“But when AJ can’t blast him out of there in three or 4 rounds, then he’s doing one thing unsuitable. He’s a lot larger and stronger, a lot extra athletic and punches a lot tougher – and he’s an Olympic gold medalist. So, he’s received every part in his favor, he simply must go on the market and let his palms go.
