I have to get this one out of the way and then I'm ready for a huge fight. I was mandatory for the European title after beating Paulie and I wasn't going to throw that away, I'm proud to have won the belt and I am happy to defend it – but after that[...]
I want to take on all-comers and I want a huge fight with another big name. Paulie was a big name but because of the stage of his career that's not being looked at as a great win. Eddie Hearn mentioned Lamont Peterson and that would be amazing.
I have real hunger back after losing to Bradley Skeete and this is massive for me as I never thought I'd reach this level. I had to learn a lot after Skeete. I have grown up and come back strong with wins over Frankie and Paulie. If I can add a win [...]
"This is the big name and big card that I've wanted for some time,". "I've asked for these sorts of fights for a while, I got Frankie and now I've got Paulie. He's going to be the biggest name on my record, you just have to look at what he's won and[...]
He's good at what he does, he is a bit like Frankie really and fighting him has put me in good stead for this one, he's not the biggest puncher and he's smaller than Frankie, but he's won World titles and been in with everyone.
"I'm delighted that the fight with Frankie is finally here,". "I want to get that British title back and win it outright, and I know that I need a good win to get back into contention.
I can't wait to get in there with him. I'm not known for talking too much because I don't think you should trash talk, but Frankie's said a few things about me and it's got my back up to be honest.
I don't mind him having a go at the way I box, but he's said some personal stuff about me and that's got me annoyed, and now I am going to punch him from pillar to post. There's no reason to get personal, maybe he's trying to do it to throw me off m[...]
I trained hard for the Skeete fight but I had the wrong mentality for the fight. I've learnt from that and it's not going to happen against Frankie, it was a good time for me to learn that lesson.
I would love to win the British title outright but I want the rematch with Bradley more than anything. Beggars can't be choosers and I am going to have to work my way back up and if it comes again hopefully it would be a different outcome.
We have done a few rounds sparring a while back, and I used to train at his gym for a while, although not with Frankie. We do know each other in general but we are not close friends or anything.
At the moment I am just looking at Saturday's fight. When the Frankie fight comes they will have different plans and I will try and pull them off but at the moment there hasn't been any real talk of the Frankie fight because if this fight goes wrong[...]
"The Gavin fight is a tough one,". "I can either wait a year, have a few fights which are good fights but would be paving the same path or I can fight Frankie, beat him, and I am back to where I was before I lost to Bradley Skeete. I am all about th[...]
You could say the Frankie fight is bigger with it being a local derby in Birmingham – it will be a bigger fight for the fans.
"It'll be a tough fight, I know that. Bradley's not daft, he's got a good boxing brain and he can 'have it' as well if he has to but I'm confident,". "This fight won't be easy but as long as we do everything we need to in training, I will come out w[...]
