“She’s fit, but I also think that some of those things can be your undoing when you’re young.

“Sometimes you’re a bit naive, you can be a bit overeager when you’re hungry.

“She’s been talking about stopping the fight early so we’ll see. That’s all I can say.

“She’s done everything asked of her. She’s beaten people I couldn’t. She’s beaten experienced girls like Eva Wahlstrom. She’s took the title, she’s got the title, and I’ve just got to take that off her.

“Hats off to her for everything she’s done. I’ve got nothing bad to say about her.

“I’m realistic. I’ve just got to bring the best version of me, and I don’t think she can deal with that.

“I think she’s the bookies’ favourite. Judging by some social media comments I’ve seen she’s possibly edging it with the fans too.

“There’s no pressure on me. She put out a statement the other day saying that there is but I don’t believe there is. She’s the champion, she’s got to keep hold of it, she’s been very vocal about how she’s going to keep hold of it. She’s got to go out and prove it.
