This is a real fighter, a real dog, and a warrior. That’s a tough fighter right there, legend.”

Paul: “I got the job done and I knew it would happen like that. I was setting up that shot the whole fight, he didn’t see it coming. He was catching, catching, catching... come around, good morning.

Asked who he wants next, Paul just says, “Anyone. Anytime. Anyplace.”
