Well, being sidelined for a year and a half, and having two major knee surgeries in a row, certainly didn’t help. It’s tough to come back, and I think I felt it. But, with that said, that’s in the past and I don’t want to give excuses, as I would rather work to improve…A lot of people complained about that, thinking it wasn’t nice to me to have me fighting Chuck so close to my comeback fight. I don’t think that way because I believe that gives me a chance to keep training, keep focused and keep getting the rhythm back. It takes a while for you to be able to train full force after the sort of surgery I had on my knee, so I see fighting in April again as a good thing.
