The first punch I threw. It was a straight left. I knew right away it broke. But I had to keep going. I couldnâ€™t throw my combinations I had worked on. Coach Tompkins was yelling at me to throw my combos. At the end of the first round I went back to the corner and Tompkins was yelling at me, â€œWhy donâ€™t you throw your combos?â€ I said, â€œMy hand is brokenâ€. He said, â€œOkâ€ and Randy said, â€œJust go first. Go for it and finish the fightâ€.
I said to myself, â€œOk, Iâ€™ll do thatâ€. It was great chemistry in the corner. I went out and I did what they said.
