Till on how he didn’t call out Mike Perry: “I didn’t call him out. (Perry) said ‘Cowboy’ was going to beat me on Twitter, and I said he wouldn’t. I was, in my mind, going to call out Mike Perry. But he got the fight booked with Santiago Ponzinibbio, who I want to fight as well. So I don’t really care about (Perry) now. The fight can happen if he beats Santiago, which I don’t think he will do, and then we can get it on. But he has a fight right now, so I don’t really care.”

Till on what’s next for him:Darren Till on where he thinks he ranks: “There’s so many more guys in front of me. They need the shot first, and then when I get my shot, I’ll just take the champion out. But I’m certainly closer. I’ll ask for the title shot when I take the No. 2 guy out.”

Darren Till on how he visualized things: “It’s only what I’ve visualized every day since my last fight, every day in the gym, just seeing not even ‘Cowboy’ fall, but just a body fall in front of me And it happened. … I never took disrespect, but when people see me in the flesh and see how I carry myself, they see it’s not fake. I’m not a fake confidence. I just totally believe in myself. When he walked into the cage, he could feel that air of confidence from me, and I already knew I had (Cerrone).”
