“Honestly, I think it's going to be a very busy fight in which both men will want to fight. I believe he will stay in boxing. We know that Strickland has this much improved weapon. He has everything to finish before the five rounds. I have no opinion on who will win, but I'm Brazilian and I'm going to support Brazil, but I don't have a guess”, said the man from Paraná.
