The promoter who represents ‘AJ’ spoke to SkySports and lashed out at the critics. He said, “I know that there are some negative people out there and people that believe we can’t pull it off, but we spend a lifetime pulling things off, and I believe we will get this done, and I believe you will see this fight in the summer.”
