Congrats on your victory. Can you give us some thoughts on your performance?
Umar Salamov: Thank you , I was very happy with it and so was my trainer Javan Sugarhill. I was able to put to use many of the things that we worked on in the gym and score a knockout with one precise punch.
GL: Since this was a very early night for you will you fight again this year?
US: That's the plan.
GL: Last time we spoke you said that you're the best light heavyweight in the world. Who do you want to fight next to show the rest of the world this? You know the top names, who do you want to fight the most?
US: I want to fight the best, Bivol, Alvarez, Kovalev, Badou Jack etc. I hope one of these fights can happen this year or early next year
GL: Is it time for you to get into some kind of elimination bout to make sure a title fight will certainly take place in the not too distant future?
US: I would definitely be open to something like that
GL: Closing thoughts.
US: I look forward to showing to the US fans that I am the best light heavyweight in the world!
