Words of the ‘Matador’

“I love to fight, what’s more, I have a lot of contained anger right now and I need to expel it. I know it will be a difficult and dangerous fight because without gloves I’m sure I’ll break cheekbones, my nose and there will be cuts for myself as well.

“I love feeling the adrenaline of a fight, and what’s more, the rules are different, the fight cannot stop even if there is a cut and bleeding on the face, but it excites me.”
