“It’s definitely gonna be this year,” Cerrone told an Irish fan. “This summer, I think, right? Hey, Irish, Australian, American. F*ckin’ root for whoever you want. I’m going in there to fight. I love it, man. I don’t care — boo, cheer.”

Another fan asked ‘Cowboy’ for a prediction on how the fight would end.

“I’m just gonna go out there and fight my ass off. Man, I really am. I’m definitely gonna stand and fight him. I’m not gonna try to wrestle him. I’m gonna f*ckin’ stand and give y’all want you want to see.”
