“Ilia is a great fighter – let’s see because the next Volkanovski is going to turn up,” Volkanovski said, as quoted by “The real Volkanovski, I guarantee you that, and let’s see if Ilia can handle that.

Again, I’m not taking anything away from him, I’m not saying he can’t. He’s obviously got heavy hands. He’s obviously got good skill, but I want him to be tested against the best version of myself or all the top guys and really prove himself.

You’re not going to see a timid Volk. You’re going to see a Volk that fights his fight, You want to be put in front of me and put yourself in a position to land bombs, be ready for one coming straight back at you”.
