“And you know if that means going in like a wrecking ball against Tyson Fury, he will do that, but people are still disregarding his boxing ability.

“We saw it against Andy Ruiz, we saw it against Kubrat Pulev. He’s not really getting the credit for that, I think you know, but it was a great performance, I thought. It was a really well-rounded, mature performance. That was a bit of everything.”
