I don’t think about who wins or loses. I just do good: Yoel Romero

On being asked who won, Yoel took the diplomatic route. He said that he doesn’t know who won or lost but gave his best. This is one very unique characteristic of the pair of Yoel and Israel. They both have not gone down the usual derogatory road towards each other prior to the fight.

Even though the regular trash-talk is obviously present, both fighters hold mutual respect for each other. Each recognizes the sparkling career that the other has to his name, and are more focused on training better than the other than talking.
