“I’ve spoke with Ross Doherty, whose boxed Dunecs, I spoke with him this morning and Ross thinks the fight is going to be very tough for me.

“He’s already said he’s very tough but he thinks my ability and my technique hopefully will win me the fight.

“I’ve only been with Dan (promoter Dan Gray) a short while, so to be challenging for a second Championship under him already is unbelievable. 

“Saying that I think I deserve this shot, I think I’m more than prepared to fight at this level, I may have been with Dan about six months but have spent twenty years in the game so am more than ready for this.”

“I’m glad to be here and make the fight tomorrow, I think we are ready to make a great show and we will try to make this the best fight.”
