Tony Luis commented to CFN:
I did what i had to do..outboxed him from the outside and outfought him on the inside.
He was quick and tricky and his height posed a bit of a problem, but my experience paid off.
I’ve seen alot of styles and I was able to adjust. I only had three weeks to prepare for him so that means 2 hard weeks of training and the last week i taper off and just cut weight.
Before we confirmed this fight i was thankfully still in the gym relatively on a maintenance program waiting on a call. A full camp for this guy however and I feel I could’ve finished the fight even sharper or even stop him.
