Favorite Book: "A Woman of Substance" by Barbara Taylor Bradford

"This book was about 300 pages and I read all of it. With a book, what I do first is read the back cover and if it seems good, I'll read it. That's what I do, read the back cover first. I like stories about a kid from a bad area and then he winds up doing good in life. Those kind of books encouraged me as a young fighter."
