“Christina does not know what’s coming to her. I’m going to break that hammer in half. When we’re in the ring, it’s about who’s hitting the most, this is a real fight.” The fact that she’s tall does not mean she’s going to take the control of the fight. She will have to do a lot to keep me away from her.
“I have two Olympic gold medals, three belts and more to come. I will have all the titles at the end of the night on April 13.
“I work hard, very hard, if I were a man, I would probably be one of the most famous fighters in the world. There`s a gender gap, we all know and I’m working to change that. We work hard, we get less money and less recognition, but the world is changing, becauswe are changing it. ”
