What has been said?
Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “He’s quite a cheeky character. You have one volume puncher, Can Xu.
“We have Leigh Wood, we don’t really know how good this guy is. He came up short against [James] Dickens.
"But he can punch. He’s taken short money, he’s taken late notice fights and on Saturday night a Brit gets a chance to become world champion [the WBA world featherweight championship].
"This guy financially could completely change his life on Saturday.”

Ryan was awarded all of the six rounds – against tough Kirsty Bevington – by referee Mark Bates.
The Derby ace won 60-54 after showing off some tidy footwork and crisp punching.
Ryan will be moved quickly following in the footsteps of fellow female Matchroom and DAZN world champion Shannon Courtenay.
