The latest quote from Liam Walsh is: “I don't just want to win, I want to be brilliant. Come fight night I'll have been out of the ring just shy of a year and I'm buzzing to get back in there. Troy is a man I've known for a long time, I remember him from the amateur days. It's a good fight and he's a decent opponent; he went ten rounds with Terry Flanagan and he's never been stopped. He's done all of his eliminators and he's earned his shot; he's got my full attention.”. It comes from the Billy Joe Saunders out of April 30 fight article.

"As amateurs me and Ryan both got to the Junior ABA Finals two years running. He won his the first year and I ruined it and lost, the next year I won my final and he lost his. We've never really had that double win on the same night and this time we[...]
So much is lined up for me after this fight and I'm not far of challenging for a world title so it's vital that I win this Saturday.
I can see the early rounds been quite entertaining if he's knocked-out most of his opponents in under three round, it could be quite a shoot-out between us, but in my mind I'm set to take him out in the mid rounds.
Sampaio either KO's you or gets KO'd, simple as that so I won't be taking my eyes off him for a second as he poses a real threat.
With the WBO Intercontinental belt up to be won, I know that a victory will be a massive boost for my rating in the organisation and will push me closer to the world title so there's no way I'm going to let Sampaio wreck them.
He looks very strong, stocky and can be dangerous with his head. I'm sure he's had some right brawls out in South America so he'll be a right tough nut to crack.
He's a late replacement for the injured Troy James and he comes in with an awesome record.
