But you must realize that sometimes there is a price. You said you wanted to fight, let’s fight if your boy doesn’t want it to happen. It’s whatever it is as long as he has a fight on that card. That’s perfect . But the ideal person would be Krause. I want you to get this job. He will probably blame this knee injury, he will say: ‘Well, I really don’t fight at 185, let’s do it at 170’, I don’t want to hear any of that noise, “he concluded. Joaquin buckley.
