Strangest Fight: "The first thing that comes to mind. I was supposed to win the gold medal in 2004 in Athens. In the semi final, it was a four round fight, two minutes each round, in the second round I was up four points. Which is a huge lead. It was pretty much in the pocket. During the third round I took a bad step and ran into a punch and got knocked down. And I lost. Everybody thought I was going to win it."
