What has been said?
“You see time and time again when people go in thinking they’re levels above someone, they usually get shown they’re not,” Edwards has said.
“It’s about showing them levels in the ring. I know I’ve got a threat against me. I know Mama is a very dangerous opponent.”
“He’s very heavy-handed, he likes to plant his feet and let big shots go, it should make for an interesting clash of styles. He’s definitely not overlooked or underprepared for.”
