The Auckland-based striker nearly pulled out of Madison Square Garden showdown due to a late notice knee injury.
"I was two days from pulling out from this fight, I was limping. You can ask Dan the guys from my gym. I will post a video explaining everything, but my knee was so inflamed and shout out to my Dad. He said take some time off, take a week off. We took our time to recover properly and we handled it well.", Adesanya said in the press conference.
