What are your thoughts on your first professional fight (against Carlos Mena in July)?

I’m pleased with how I boxed because imagine it could have gone worse. The guy actually came to throw some punches. He wasn’t going to lay down. That made it interesting, excitement for the crowd. Ultimately the result was the same. Got a good win. It’s good. I enjoyed it.

The first time you put him down it looked like he was out for the count but he bounced up, and then you put him down a couple more times, what did you think when he kept getting up?
