1I don't like to go to bars. First of all, I'm not a drinker. Second, there's always someone that has guts and wants to fight because they're probably a little bit tipsy. I never fought in my life outside of a ring.
2Vitali is always standing in my corner when I fight and I stand in his corner when he does. We recently found out that is also a great help at the stare down before the fight. Our opponents are always confronted with two pairs of bad looking eyes who stare them down.
