“I’ve never really come across him before, but I’m not too worried about what he’s going to bring to the table,” said Vallily.
“All I’m really focused on is myself. If I’m prepared and 100 per cent on my game, this kid will get taken to pieces,” added the Imran Naeem-trained fighter. “I’ll be in my best shape ever for this fight.”
