One of the best, and easily the most creative dude I’ve had the honor of sharing a ring with. See you at Don Julio’s, brother. https://t.co/xlrUXVV09y

Classic tweet, man.
One of the hardest workers in a business full of hard workers. Creative, intelligent, and a student of the game.
To whoever lands AG next, congrats! https://t.co/AvAuj9CfPz
