“I was setting up that right hand all night. Since the third round I noticed he dropped his left hand when he took a step to the left, and that’s what I got him with. I landed the big shot.
“I knew the big shot was coming it was just a matter of time. Sure enough, when that right hand landed, I knew it was over.
“Im next in line for Deontay Wilder, I’m coming for him. I’ve been waiting for him and I did what I had to do. I’m ready for him now.
“It’s been way too long – 13 months. I definitely worked off some ring rust, worked some great combinations and body shots, and finally got the KO.
“Yes, I know Wilder is here in the crowd. He came to watch. He knows I’m next. He better be holding on to that baby really tightly, because I’m coming. Trouble is already here.”
