“Run it up,” McKee said. “Like I said, I don’t turn down no fades, man. I’m in this for the long haul. I think that would be a good fight. I think it would be my first real huge fight into stardom. Ain’t no hard feelings, but he can get Long Beach slapped. I could get Stockton slapped. Let’s see who slaps harder. I think he’s gonna probably be boxing. It’s more ideal. He’s been through a lot, man. I’ve been watching him since I was a kid. He’s a great performer, great fighter. He’s just doing his thing.”
