No controversy. No huge communication campaign. The facts will speak for themselves. I have learned the value of hard work, how to compete, how to push my own limits through kickboxing. The GOAT is working harder than ever to kill the Heavyweight division. To my fans : thank you for your unconditional support… 2019 will be ours. #TheyAreNotPrepared
