I’m a four-time world champion in four different weight classes, and if I never put my gloves on again, I feel safe to say I’ll be in #BoxingHallofFame. So, I have to step back The next step, overcoming this hurdle, and then putting my life within a circle. I know I’m far from done with this sport. See you soon.”
