“You’re gonna have a lot to deal with,” Alvarez told Perry. “It’s gonna be something different than you’ve ever felt. You might question yourself inside of the fight.”

Perry responded: “I’m about to beat the sh*t out of you. Easy work, no problem. You’re right: It’s gonna be different. … This one is gonna be different in the fact that it’s the easiest one ever, and I’m just gonna shut you down.”
