game. He is there all the time. His worth ethic is
"Overall, my skill level improved. This is due to my
consistent training after my brief break. My mind is up to
speed in terms of timing, reflexes, distance, and control.
Overall my game is much better."

pass Fortuna. I am going to campaign for the fight against
Gervonta Davis. We want to be transparent about the process

find ways to exploit the truth and clear the fog. I have to
be transparent, just like I was with the Cruz negotiations."

traditions, and we keep each other close. We love each
other, pray together, and this journey of my boxing career

I love everyone being happy, and I love sharing all my
success with everyone I love."

a second wind. There have been little things that I have
been able to construct in my mind that evaluate and have
solutions for when training. So now I feel even more
comfortable in a 12-round fight; and I will be able to show
you what I have learned and what I have been working on on
"I am a great fighter. I am going to show you the difference
between me and Jojo Diaz and Robert Easter Jr. Nothing is
guaranteed, but I am 99.999% confident I will take Fortuna
