It’s been a miracle and blessing from God that I haven’t had anything seriously wrong that would keep me out for a year or two or ended my career. I’m just glad to be here for my kids, my family, my fans, and everybody who supported me and the media and stuff like that. It’s a blessing just to be here.”

I don’t want a tune-up fight. I want to fight [titleholder Manny] Pacquiao or [former titlist Danny] Garcia if he wins his fight [against Ivan Redkach on Jan. 25]. I want to fight Danny Garcia. I was supposed to fight him in January, but I had my accident. That’s the guys I’m looking to fight.
