When Nick was very surprised to have this matchup but is excited about the opportunity at hand.
“Originally when they pitched it to me I was pretty surprised. My coach said ‘How do you feel about fighting Marcus Davis?” I was like “Wait a minute who? Marcus Davis, Marcus Davis? He was like ‘Yeah he’s going to do another fight.’ I was like “F–k yeah’ As soon as he said that Marcus Davis I was like ‘I’m down.’ I mean you don’t get a lot of opportunities to fight somebody that’s like a legend in the sport.”
