Ben Askren: "We haven’t seen anything.

"The level of his competition was so low that it was almost impossible to tell if he is actually good at this.

"If there is one thing people respect about all fighters it’s the toughness to deal with adversity in battle and we have not seen that out of him.

"I don’t think he was hit hard by either one of those guys. They were so incredibly terrible at boxing. So we haven’t seen anything out of him yet."
