The ‘Silent Assassin’, as he is known, got emotional when analyzing his return and spoke of a miracle.

“I’m a cold guy, but I’m emotional right now. It’s a miracle I’m here. A lot of people don’t know what happened to me. I’m not afraid of anything, but I was afraid of never doing this (fight) again. I beat a former champion at his own game in five rounds.”declared Lucas.

“The strategy was to do everything, I was ready for everything. In the first round, he was afraid of being hit, he hadn’t fought in a year. I’m looking at the top of the category. I want to improve and evolve every day”completed.
