“Selfishly, it possibly occurred at a great time top into my struggle,” Conlan explained to The Impartial. “It’s possibly heading to be a bit challenging for it to take place now that has occurred. I felt devastated for Jack Catterall, but in a egocentric way it was far better it transpired then than for me.”

“I’m not nervous about knocking any person out or anything like that. If it will come, it comes. It very maybe could come, but at the minute I’m just targeted on staying the finest I can be and if I do that, no judge in the globe could rob me of that, so I’m thrilled.”
