At 8:00 am Austin got up for his last morning run, prior to the fight. It was short and sweet. Afterwards we went and ate a good breakfast then he went to his room to rest. At 1:00 we were picked up for the press conference that was held in a bar/restaurant. It was a full house with TV and a bunch of the press, shooting pictures and asking the fighters questions. It was all very tame, again no drama.
After the press conference we ate and went back to train. Austin did a few rounds shadow box and a couple on the mitts and finished with a couple on the skip rope. I’ve never, ever seen him hitting as hard as he’s hitting now and he’s as sharp as he’s ever been.
I know we’re going into the lions den, but I feel extremely good about how Austin is looking for this fight.
Again, thank you for your prayers and support.
