Trinidad ran the ball well against us, but a lot of their yards came between the 20 yard lines. Our defense bent but didn't break. We created turnovers and forced them into tough situations.
When a balance between Trinidad and island interests is being served, and the Caribbean is again speaking with one voice, T&T must decisively seek the support of Brazil and Mexico, with the region's assistance, in delicately balancing our position between our revolutionary neighbour only seven miles away and our commercial and social ties with North America and Europe.
This is a fight I have always wanted. I thought Felix Trinidad would be the defining fight of my life but it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. Now I'm getting a chance for redemption. I must win this fight for me, the people of Nicaragua and everyone in the world who loves me because of the way I fight.
