“It’s horrible. I’ve never been put in this situation before,” Page said. “I actually don’t know if taking the fight is even the right decision or the wrong decision. I just feel like I need to have this fight.

“I feel like he would want me to have this fight. He was equally excited about seeing the fight. It’s hard to know whether I’m doing the right thing or the wrong thing.”

Page however claimed that except his emotional turmoil, everything has felt smooth. The situation obviously being unfamiliar for Page, he said he will prefer to address the issue in detail after the fight.

“Physically, in the gym, I’ve felt amazing. (But) mentally, I don’t know where I have been,” Page admitted. “It’s only recently that I’ve felt a little bit more like myself and been able to enjoy life a little bit again.

“I’ve never been put in this situation before, so it’s been very difficult. I’ll let you know after the fight. Ask me again then.”
