Nu väljer “Poster Boy” att släppa ett uttalande, där han förklarar vad som föranledde skadan samt ber om ursäkt till sina fans.

Manuwa beskriver att han sträckte låret under sitt sista hårda träningspass inför matchen. Efter att ha kollat på skadan uppskattade sedan läkarna att det skulle ta honom minst sex veckor att återhämta sig.

I'm truly gutted. The day after I landed in Brazil I went for my last hard training session. During that session of sprints I tore my hamstring, and after getting it assessed in hospital, doctors diagnosed it as a severe tear greater than 50%. They told me it will be a minimum of 6 weeks recovery time. Ill be working hard everyday to get back so I can continue to put on great fights for everyone to watch. I was 100% ready and looking forward to putting on a great show for the fans in São Paulo and around the world . I made a lot of sacrifices and even missed my daughter's 10th birthday. I'm sorry Havana, I love you, Daddy is on his way home. I want to thank everyone of you for the love and support you have sent my way. Without all of you none of this is possible. I can't wait to come back and put on a show for you all. Lions eat first 🦁
