“If I had to put money on it, I would probably favor 'MVP.' It's going to be a good fight. I'm interested to see how this plays out. If both continue to win, 100% (sure about the duel). I only look at number one and number two. I think after that, it becomes too much for me. Like, a lot of stuff coming in. After I beat Belal, that's how I see it. I still don't look at the number 10, 11 or nine. Until they start getting into the top-five, then I'll be like, 'OK, who is this?' Then I’ll start looking (to find out about the fighter),” said Edwards.
