“It was crazy but before the fight, she was like almost in a trance. And she was standing there while they were getting ready and she’s going, ‘I’m the best I’m the best’. She was standing there like this is after she won the title. But give it a volume, this girl just got knocked out but back it up, back it up. That’s Pat Barry, that’s her boyfriend and her trainer and he’s like who’s the best? She’s like I’m the best, so they give her the title. And then I talk to her about it and when I’m talking to her, she’s emotional she’s crying, and I cried I totally cried this the first time I ever cried during an interview first time.”
