I stepped into the ring ready to show the world my heart and skills, and I felt I would demonstrate that on Saturday night. I was never down, let alone out, and the referee had to save me from myself because I am fearless. I've received so much love and support from many different places, and it has made a huge difference in my ability to cope and accept this defeat. I promise to come back better and stronger than ever to further prove to myself and the skeptics that I belong at the highest level in the sport with the best of them," wrote Romero.
