He, however, revealed that he wants this wish granted only when his friend, Israel Adesanya is no longer champion.
According to him, Adesanya is his friend, and he would never contemplate having him as an opponent to compete for the belt.
He added that he would rather have two Africans hold boxing belts, than one African with two belts.
His words, “Absolutely, absolutely. If Izzy’s willing to move up – well he is moving up, but if he’s willing to give up that 185 belt and says “I have nothing to do with that anymore”, then absolutely I would entertain that thought.”
“On no account right now would I ever entertain going up to fight Izzy. That’s just not something that I’m interested in.”
“I’ve stated over and over before, I’d rather two Africans with belts as opposed to one African with two belts.”
“After March, it’s gonna be three Africans with four belts. It’s a good time to be an African.”
