Beautiful,” Carlos Ulberg said post-win. “When you coming up against a guy like Alonzo Menifield – to be careful of his power, he’s got a lot of power, explosive. As long as I stuck to the game plan with my coaches Mikey, Andre and Eugene, obviously. We knew he was going to come forward. So, I just I just had to do what I had to do.”

We did expect something like that [Menifield rushed forward], but he did catch me and that woke me up and when you wake a lion up – he comes up.”

“I know I’m ranked now, but I’ve got I’ve got a bone to pick and EA Sports you be put me on the game because I want to be playing the game with myself on there and then also anybody in that top 10 I’ll destroy anybody in my weight.”

“Nothing but trying to make my way to the top. That’s it.”
