Now I know what happened that day.

I’m going to put him in a coffin this time. He doesn’t want that fight. He doesn’t want that fight. I guarantee you he doesn’t want that fight. I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t want it. Have I lied to myself here yet? Have I lied to you about something yet? Nothing. I said what I wanted to do and that’s what I’m going to do. We will see if it materializes. I would love to be able to shut his mouth. I know I will, “he concluded. Kamaru usman.
