“Apart from Canelo Alvarez, he is the most important figure in boxing,” Diaz said in a press release. “I have come to defeat him. I’m the Combat King – then I’ll be back to collect my UFC belts. At one time, I punished Conor for his antics, and here I am again, as the superhero of a real Fighting game, the King of a real Fighting game.
