“I retired from the sport, and I didn’t let the sport retire me.
“I’m always going to put myself in a position now to where I, just like I was doing, fighting at the highest level. I was dictating and being in control.
“I’m not going to go in there with no former fighters, former world champions, putting more abuse on my body. I retired for a reason.
“I’m here to have fun and enjoy myself, sometimes three rounds, sometimes eight rounds, with guys that are going to help me entertain people.
“I’m not going to take punishment to the point to where I can barely walk or barely talk.
“Manny had a great career, but boxing retired Manny, Manny didn’t retire from boxing. There’s a difference.
