He further talked about his Tokyo Olympics opening-round 7-0 loss to Japan’s Yuki Takahashi. “Paris is something that — I know I’m going to need some time off now — it’s something I’m going to need to assess, because Tokyo didn’t go the way I wanted it to. I felt sick and I didn’t manage my weight very well.
