“Eight days into this camp I tore my hamstring [and] bruised my patella tendon, It was just a minor tear of my hamstring and a deep bruise of my patella tendon, I was doing mitt work like twice a day. I wasn’t able to spar. I only sparred once for this camp, but honestly today I felt great coming into the fight. I was worried about that coming in, but things just healed in time.”
