“I don’t include myself in decision-making. I’m a coach. They just gave me dates and opponents.”
“I can come up with ideas, but I will not make management or promotion decisions. Larry Wade is a great coach and we’ve seen Robacy grow from the moment he got to where he is today.
“Robeisy’s talent and intelligence are immense. Technically everything was fine, but he lacked physical and mental. Fight for the belt, which means money.
“The most unusual thing is the emergence of power. Dogboe is a warrior, but he was already taken down by the not-so-great puncher Jesse Magdaleno and fell with Vaquero. He stopped fighting until the final bell rang.” I know not.
