He said,

"If people can ride with me for the next 10 to 12 years I would really appreciate it, but if they can't foresee the future I'd rather they jump off the boat because I can't stop for no one right now."

"I was speaking to my coach, who worked with Carl Froch, who had a 12-year career. One day it does finish and now he has all the time in the world to think about business, family."
