Erick Silva
“I needed a win, but at no point I felt pressured. Losing my last fight served as motivation, not as pressure. I trained very hard, it was the best camp of my life. I was the first to arrive in the gym and the last one to leave. I was very hungry for the win. The result couldn’t have been different. I want to keep training and on Monday I’ll be in the gym again.”
