& # 39; It's very exciting; I can set the sport (on the card). That is my passion; I want to do everything. We thought we would never get the chance to fight, but we have it.

& # 39; If I can beat the Olympic champion, it will be after I couldn't go to the Olympics. Competing with an Olympic champion is very important, and now I have the chance. & # 39;
