But we attempt to make good, conscientious choices…typically you make fights individuals don’t agree with however, once more, there’s at all times a plan, a technique to the insanity, and there’s a long-term plan.

“I’m excited for this card to kick off for Amazon Prime. This will be a tremendous card full of great fights. No, this is not the All-Star team per se, but these are some very good fights and we think there’s going to be a tremendous response to the support.”

On who he’d favor to win between Canelo and Crawford
