MF: Believe me, I've been thinking of it for the last ten years already. I think I was smart enough not to throw the money from the window and, I dare to say, on my way of living. I really think me and my family live humbly. I've secured my life, and I won't have to open the newspaper and be looking for work. What I'm going to do? I don't know. I've made some investments during my career that I'm happy with, so my life, talking financially, is definitely OK. People ask me if I'm going to open a school. Why not? I think I should. Maybe not a typical school where anyone can come but with young fighters definitely one day. I don't have the nerves for amateurs.
