He talked about his approach to the fight as he continued to speak The Pat McAfee Showhe said, “I’m like that sometimes. I was disappointed with my performance, I felt like I should have gone out there and knocked him out in one lap. I know I still screwed him up, screwed up someone who had never been screwed before.
Paddy added, “He had 11 pro fights, lost one and never finished and I choked his ass. He was treated like I knew he would be treated. I kept saying he’d finish, I thought it was going to be a knockout, but he’s defending shots well, it’s quite strange. He doesn’t like defending them skillfully, but he defends them well and then he just grabs you.”
“I can fight like this every time. I’m a big fat bastard right now, but if someone called me right now and said, ‘Go out to the straightener’, I’d be out there beating them up. I enjoy being hit and punching people in the face. It sounds very strange but I enjoy it.” Paddy closed.
