“I’m happy to be back in the UAE to give people excitement. We’re both going to have fun and all of the people in the world are going to be entertained.
“Deji has a huge following, I have a huge following and it’s all about excitement. We’re both going to bring it and I think it’s going to be really cool for the UAE.
“I like his confidence and I like that after his first fight, he didn’t give up. He kept working hard to get better and improve.”
“This is amazing. I’m truly blessed. This is surreal. We’re making history. I don’t really have the words to properly explain how I feel.
“At the end of the day, I’m here to have fun and showcase my skills. We’ll see what happens in the ring on November 13.
“I always want to encourage people to never give up. I was a guy who people always doubted. But I made sure that I worked hard and carried on, because I’m never going to give up.
“I want to show Floyd that I’m really bringing something to the table with this fight.”
KEANE ANIS Co-Owner, Global Titans Fight Series
