Dear Boxing Fans, HBO & Media,

I want to thank you for all the support and  joy you have brought to me and  my family over the last week. After being robbed of the biggest win of my career, I didn't know what was next but after hearing all the support of everybody I can't help but smile and keep my head high. I know July 9 was the biggest victory of my career. So I just want to let the world know I'm ok, my head is healed completely from the head butts and I'm just kicking back with my family enjoying my victory because it's the people who I care for who show me love. Thanks to my family,fans, friends, my team, HBO and last but not least all the Media members!

I plan to return by the end of the year in a meaningful fight and once again put on a great show for the fans. I hope Paul Williams recovers well from the blows he received on July 9 and  IF he wants me to give him an opportunity to clear the record I am willing to do it tomorrow or whenever he recovers. IF NOT I wish him all the luck in the future.

Once again I appreciate all the support you all have a warm place in my Heart.

Thank you!
