“I thought I had got him.”
“I am so careless.”
“I am so overconfident.”
“It is a good fight. I am overconfident. I thought I got him.”
“If they give us a chance we will fight him [again].
Marquez, via an interpreter, says:
“We knew he was going to come out aggressive. We were able to capitalise on it.”
“We knew it was a difficult fight but not impossible to win.”
“We had to use our technique and skill and not let Manny connect as he has usually done.”
(Was the win down to all those new muscles?) “We worked strength and speed.”
(Will there be a fifth fight?) “We will relax and talk to the family.”
