Having a little baby at home would not allow her to be in the corner at her hubby’s fight, something that he is gong to miss terribly.
“With the baby being born, this is the first time she won’t be in the arena with me. Tessa’s been to all my fights. She’s traveled to Japan with me and all over the world, so it will be weird not having her there, but I know she’ll be with me in my mind and in my heart. She’s always with me.”
