I would need to transport my coaches somewhere, find a place for basic training and carry sparring.” partners to prepare for Kamaru Usman. But I don’t want to leave my home. I have no health problems and I am rich. I am not attracted to the idea of taking and throwing away three months of life in order to try to defeat Usman. Time passes and I want to return to the octagon less and less. And I don’t think there is anyone who will make me comeback. I’m all good. I train and keep myself in shape. “
