“Everything is good, and camp went great, I love fighting in front of my fan base, the continue to support me. I feel like I am improving with each fight. I am just looking to stay behind my jab, don’t rush anything and stay poised, and the knockout will come. My father instructs me and keeps me calm. We come up with a gameplan, and I execute it it. We always have a plan B if Plan A doesn’t work. I am always ready for whatever happens in there.
