“Can I say, Bobby Green is the only man in the last quarter to say yes to me,” Dober said afterwards. “Take chances, chase greatness. Being perfect is boring. He’s fast, he’s hard to hit. He can talk. It was hard to deal with but I’m blessed that I found it.
“I think there’s a guy in the top 10 … Jalin Turner. I would love those problems. Please say yes.”
Turner tweeted right away seemingly agreeing to match with Dober.
