POST FIGHT QUOTES
“Tough loss, but I’m a true fighter and a competitor. This is only going to bring out the best in me. I’m going to be a better, smarter fighter. Lara was a good fighter, very crafty. It happens.
“I hate to lose but I know it comes with the sport. I’m going to come back even stronger, I’m a warrior. I’ll never quit. I’m just going to keep climbing. I don’t lay down, I’m going to keep getting better.”
“We want to give a lot of credit to Gausha. He’s an Olympian and he came to fight. I take the rhythm of the boxing match and that’s when I take over. He’s fighting with the best in the division. He’s not a stupid fighter, but he knew who he was facing today.
“I’m ready to box anyone that comes my way. I’m the best boxer at 154 pounds and I won’t shy away from anyone that wants to fight me. I’ll box whoever, just line them up. I’m not afraid. I have proven that I’m a true champion. I’ll fight (Jermell) Charlo if I have to. We are friends, but business is business.”
