“It’s definitely an advantage. The scenario is kind of a win-win for me. I’ve already made history. I’ve done a lot of things, especially opening up this new division. The other scenario is I beat Shevchenko, so it’s definitely a win-win for me. No stress on my shoulders.”
“I think it will be an entertaining fight for sure.”
