“I was [sitting] here for some good hours discussing how to say this [and] I put into words what I feel [and] I’m just going to say it straight … I CAN DO MY COLLABON! “I am out of my fight next week against Marvin,” Till wrote. “Everybody around me or around me knows that I train every day with my knees, lower back, shoulders, arms and the list goes on.

I literally put my heart, soul, mind, physical body, cash, diet, sleep, recovery [and] after a few to make sure i went there there next week [and] he pulled out his head. And I was 100 percent sure that I would … and easily !!! I’m sure he thought the same but ah … “
