"A big win at The O2 will be the perfect end to a great year for me,". "Beating Tommy in the huge show in Hull in the summer was great, but this fight with Mendy is massive for me before moving towards a World title fight in 2016.
Yvan has bags of experience and has mixed at a high level and gave Postol and Tatli 12 hard rounds, so it's going to be a real test for me and one that I need with an exciting year ahead of me in the brilliant Lightweight division.
I feel like I'm ready to push for World honours in 2016 and we are looking for a highly ranked opponent for Dec 12 at the O2. The domestic scene is buzzing at 135lbs and I'm confident I can capture that World title next year.

My dream is to capture the British public's eye. I want to entertain them and give them good fights.
"This fight's been on the horizon now for the past year. I'm expecting a full house August 1. I'm expecting 20,000. I think it'll be great.
"I don't take anyone for granted. You could say Brizuela was more of a threat, more of an awkward opponent than Tommy Coyle because he's quicker, he's got better movement and he's been the distance a fair few times and boxed for a world title. Now t[...]
"It's crazy but all those years of sacrifice and hard work, it's paying off. People can see that now. No one was never there when I was working and grafting hard and performing well when I was in the amateurs. But people can actually see what I'm do[...]
"Linares is probably the best in the division right now,". "I watched the Mitchell-Linares fight at the O2, it was cracking fight. I'm gutted for Kevin, I really wanted Kevin to do the business. I was gutted for him. It's boxing, he's a warrior, he'[...]

"It's a great win for me,"
"He had a very elusive and awkward style and I hit him with some cracking shots in the first round and he just nodded to say, 'OK, let's have some more'. He's a tough, tough customer so I had to nullify that and to get him out of there in five, I'm [...]
"He was coming to win, has a very good record and is very experienced,". "For me to go in there and do that I am really happy with myself.
I'm a bit overwhelmed with the crowd and the support I have got here tonight. Hopefully I can come back and put on another great performance in Hull.
We'll soon see what I'm made of.
"They're trying to build a fight with Tommy Coyle for the Hull showdown. It makes sense from a business point of view. We're two Hull fighters at the end of the day and I think it would be great for the city. I think they're looking at that for next[...]
"Why rush something that could be massive for the city? That fight, Eddie [Hearn]'s a fantastic promoter, when he promotes a show, he will promote that show fantastically and it would be a massive occasion for Hull. You can't rush something like tha[...]
I wasn't on form. Each performance now is getting better and better as you'll see.
"[Woodruff] wasn't a very good performance for me whatsoever. I'd overtrained as well for that fight, which was my mistake because I'd been out for a few months, I wasn't focused and mentally on it as I should have been,". "I still went in there and[...]
"It's going to be a good fight, the fans are happy about it,". "It's going to be a test for me.
"It was the whole experience of traveling abroad, being on a different show, having to go through the different medicals and experience outside boxing in the heat. It was boiling hot, that in itself was a little learning experience. It's having to d[...]
"Tommy and I have been friends for a long time, we've known each other for over a decade, we trained together as kids, but this is the sport we're in, it's the entertainment business and we can put our friendship to one side for a night to put on a [...]
