That never added any pressure. That was just Don King's doing, and his attempts to make more money. But King did affect me as a fighter, because I couldn't get any fights because I wouldn't sign up with him.

But I couldn't get them and I did the best I could. I did the best I could with the cards I was dealt with. Had I had another year, I think I would've beaten him - and Larry Holmes even said that himself; that if I'd had another year to get ready I'[...]
