“I had just fought in December and I had a cut [above my eye] from that Michael Johnson fight. It pretty much split right open.
“I didn’t really feel it at the time but I looked back on the fight and thought ‘Oh f*ck’. It was a real nice uppercut.
“My eye got blurry for a minute. In between rounds, they wiped it with ice. Then, in the second round, the ice water and blood came into my eyes and I couldn’t see shit.”
