"Every day I pray for my father. He is the one who brought me to this life. This gives me great motivation. My father is always with me. It's the right thing to do. I carry the strength of my father. I carry his picture with me everywhere. I wanted this fight. It gives me more motivation knowing that the boxing world wants me to win. To win, I don't need to be heavy, I need to be fast and agile.
