Both then and now, what can I do in this fight, regardless of Cris' age, she's always saying: 'Ah, I'm older, I want to retire...', it's an absurd risk for me. Regardless of the result, it will be the biggest fight of my life,” she said.

I know she's going to move forward, I don't know how to move backwards either, I only know how to move forward and, I don't know, I think the feeling is that it's going to be an explosion right away and that everyone is going to say: 'man God, who's going to fall first?', you know?
