“I fought with a good boxer. In Argentina, he is a good boxer and in the world ranking.
“I fought him and after three rounds they give the win to him. I thought I won the fight but it’s the decision of the judges.
“I think I did my best. I worked very hard. I know I won it. Even the crowd and the supporters know that I won the fight.
“But I don’t know. I just give thanks to almighty Allah.”
