Speaking to when he confirmed he was set to turn over O’Reilly said:

“I just feel it’s the right time.

“It’s something I have wanted to do for a long time. I have always wanted to box. I felt there is not that much opportunities in the k1/Muay Thai.”

“The transition? .. I think I will find it alright to be honest, I don’t feel like I’m second to anybody. I know I have a lot of work a head of me but I’m willing to do it, I’m excited for the future.”
