“A lot of guys just – it’s not even professional, it’s more, these guys are jealous, envy of him,” Roufus stated. “It triggers a strange energy. Like Fernando Vargas tried to bully De La Hoya, De La Hoya knocked him out. Like Duran tried to do two times versus ‘Sugar’ Ray Leonard, ‘Sugar’ Ray Leonard put it on Duran the 2nd time.

“Like Mayorga tried to do to Oscar De La Hoya. So many guys try to bully Anthony, I love it, because it brings out the best in Anthony. Looking forward to it, sometimes fights are personal, and those are the fun ones if you ask me.”
