“I’m motivated by the will and the desire to do what I love, which is to train and to fight,” Silva said. “There’s no reason to wait for fight night. I feel very happy right now. I’m in a great mood, and I’m training harder than ever. There’s no reason for anything to go wrong, and I’m 100 percent sure I’m going to win.
“There’s not much left to be said. I just thank my fans. On the 28th, everyone make sure to tune in.”
