What has been said?

"I think just the fact that I'm a southpaw helps against him. He has obviously lost two fights against Oleksandr Usyk who is a southpaw, so that's good," Wallin said in an interview with Vegasinsider.

"Also, I feel like I'm in a much better mental space than he is. 

"I really love this situation that I'm in. I don't feel like I have that much pressure on me. I can just go out there and have fun.

"He's in a much tougher position where he probably feels a lot of pressure and kind of has to win and do it in style. That's all in my favour."
