It’s a business, but at the same time I think it’s worth the trilogy fight. I’m even asked for a tentative fight. I didn’t. No one knows if I took it, but I should have asked. Only the toes in the water. I don’t know. [if I would have taken it].. do not understand. It’s the end. “
He didn’t get the chance to fight for the provisional belt, but Miocchi revealed that he wanted his next fight to be a trilogy with Francis Ngannou. Since they are 1-1, it makes some sense for them to undo it.
