The fact is that I am still training for this, I know that one day the agreement will be found and I am ready for him. I get involved. When an opportunity is available, I like to make the most of what I have. I believe that if I fight Mike, the match will produce a profit of 200 million dollars.
It will be the greatest fight there can be, this is the honest truth. I think Mike already has my message. If he is going to do it he will, otherwise not. It's a decision he has to make now and we both have to agree. I'm happy if Mike will face me."
