In an interview with Yahoo Sports Holloway said, “Ah for sure, for sure. ‘DC’ is a big help I call him out all the time about being the daddest man on the planet…. We can fight at super heavyweight DC, Daddest man on the planet I own that belt. But all jokes aside, that guy is a big help you know?

He added, “He calls me here and there to check in just to talk about stuff, talk about life, talk about the way I approach fights. I got to talk to him a little bit during this camp here and there and he talks to me about approaching, his mindset and these are the kinds of things to think of. It’s super cool that I got someone like that on my side, you know? That’s been there, done that, and I get to learn through him.”
