“I just felt like I had every opportunity in this match. Being down from the second, third, fourth round, it wasn’t very easy, so I probably topped for my most difficult time to win.
“But it also makes me feel good that I was able to be fit and be able to win the event. I can’t believe I won, but it’s cool.”
