“That judge (Alejandro Rochin) – I don’t know what fight he was watching I really don’t.
“I tried to calm by brothers down, the last thing I wanted was a mass brawl which could have happened if I didn’t calm the situation down.
“It could have given boxing and my country a bad reputation. I tried to calm all the problems down and get out of there.

“History will look back on this, they’ve denied me the biggest comeback in history.”
