The impact of the coronavirus on sport has been massive and, for me, leading up to this fight it has been a double-edged sword.

There has been the frustration and chaos of opponents turning down fights, agreeing to fights then going silent - and then last week Armenian Vahram Vardanyan had to withdraw due to visa issues. Tomorrow an opponent will be announced and the guy we're looking at has fought at a higher level than Vardanyan.

Bizarrely, from all these coronavirus issues, I have gained a positive that will help for the rest of my career and it was shown in my last spar, which was one of the best I've had in years.
