‘We’re very close. I had a meeting with AJ last night. We’ve had offers in from the Far East, Middle East, Africa, America, Turkey. ‘I’ve been to Madison Square Garden, I’ve been to Saudi Arabia, bring me home. Forget the other offers, bring me home.
‘He wants to fight in London in June. We’re on the verge of making that happen now. ‘Spurs is the front runner and that’s what he’s asked me to do. We’ll be delivering that for him.
