“I welcome Antoine to my stable,” said Rivalta. “It’s a pleasure to work with Antoine. I have seen what he has done up to this point in his career, and he is a very talented athlete. I think he has the potential to be a world champion, and I am excited to help in his path to winning that title.”

“I am glad to sign with Henry,” stated Douglas. “He has the experience at the highest level, and me and my team can focus on what everybody’s role will be.”

Rivalta continued to glow about his new acquisition.
