"I never dreamed of being a fighter," Mikey says. "Right now, I wouldn't change it. I'm glad I chose this career. It's what I do best, so why change it? I haven't told my brother yet, but I plan on maybe retiring in four or five years. At 30, I plan on doing something else. For now, I will just do what I do best."
