I am very glad to be back in new York, which I consider my second home. Now things are going very well. I’m working with the best people in Boxing. I have the perfect opponent for a long time I know.
Sergiy Derevyanchenko is a very classy boxer. This is not a game but a real game. A little afraid, because I know that Sergey has a very strong team. Know Derevyanchenko feels strong and confident, but that’s Boxing. No one knows who will emerge from the ring victorious,
