I grew up as a huge Ricky Hatton fan and there was always a special atmosphere at his fights. The Manchester public bring that special atmosphere and I want those big nights that he had. Every time I've boxed in Manchester I've got a knockout win and I'm aiming to carry that on next month. It's going to be a big test but one that I'm going to step-up to and deal with. If I'm not on my game he's a potential banana skin. I have to win this if I want those big unification fights later in the year”.
I don't look too far ahead – that's why I'm 32-0 – but there's been talk of these big fights and if I come through against Petrov then it might happen.
Having thousands of fans cheering me on gives me and real boost and I hope you can all turn out and get behind me on April 8th. I'm looking to make a big statement and I want as many of my fans in there to see it as possible.
Fighting at the Etihad would be a dream come true. I grew up as a huge Ricky Hatton fan and there was always a special atmosphere at his fights. The Manchester public bring that special atmosphere and I want those big nights that he had. Every time [...]
Frank's delivered everything he promised. He got me a British title, a WBO European title and a WBO world title; I got the opportunity to defend it in my own town and then defend it in someone else's back yard. I know I'm the best lightweight in the[...]
"I'm excited to get out there again and put in a big performance before getting the blockbuster fights that Frank has promised me next year,". "Last time I fought in Cardiff I wasn't happy with how I boxed so it will be good to show the Welsh fans t[...]
I do what I need to get the win but if I feel the stoppage is there I'll go for it. Cruz is a strong fighter and very dangerous and more than capable of causing an upset. I'm out to prove a point and show everyone that I'm world class. Linares in se[...]
"With 'Baby Bull', I said yes [to the fight] but it was sh*t money [in the USA], so we said 'let's bring it over here' and he priced himself out."
I've got two, three fight tops at this weight so if it [a fight with Crolla] doesn't happen in the next two, three fights it won't [ever] happen.
I want the biggest fights out there. Crolla got offered the fight for this date and his team don't want it. Linares isn't the number one in the world, I think I am and I think Crolla sees me as number one as well, that's why he don't want it.
I've got my fight with Mzonke to deal with, I've got to get that out the way and we'll see what's coming after that. Zlaticanin's got the WBC belt, so I don't see how Crolla-Linares is a unification fight. That could be a possible fight, hopefully w[...]
"I'd love to take the Lomachenko fight if he stepped up, even the Zlaticanin fight because that'd be a proper unification fight,". "The Lomachenko fight wouldn't be bigger in Manchester [than a fight with Anthony Crolla] but worldwide he's more well[...]
"If he gets beat, that fight's gone in my eyes,". "I'll be chasing Linares then, won't I? I want to unify the division, I don't want to be fighting Crolla [if he loses] do I?
I'd beat him, I'd beat [Jorge] Linares, I'd beat [Rances] Barthelemy, all of them. But the Crolla fight is the one people absolutely want to see and it's the fight I want to give them.
"I'm ticking over at the moment. We're pushing for that Crolla fight, I'm not sure it'll happen but I should be out in July on the Fury-Klitschko show if not. Nothing's set in stone for that yet, but I know I'll be out around that time."
Then he released the statement saying it can go on Sky and they [Crolla's team] still haven't come back with anything, which just shows they don't want it.
"It's going to be a good night in Liverpool. I think it's going to be a bit hostile for me coming from Manchester so it should be a good atmosphere,". "The hostility doesn't bother me; not where I'm from! The atmosphere isn't going to bother me. I'm[...]
I think I'm the best lightweight in the world but it's for you to judge. Obviously I can't look past Derry but when I come through Saturday they're the kind of fights I want to prove that I'm the best.
"It's tough. Boxing is tough, it's a tough sport but every fight, from my first fight to my 28th, I don't take any fight lightly. I've trained hard, I've conditioned myself, I've trained like a machine. I know it's going to be a hard night but it's [...]
"It means a lot to be known as the first ever English lightweight world champion, to go down in the history books it means an awful lot to me. Now I'm starting to earn better money, give my family a better life, it means an awful lot,". "I knew the [...]
"It was hard in there, Ormond is a tough, tough, fighter, but I had to overcome a fighter like him before I know that I'm ready for the world title. He probably got frustrated in there because I was getting on top with my punches and he used his he[...]
There will be pressure on me even though it's not in my home city of Manchester, he's coming over from Ireland so I'm going to make sure I'm the winner on home soil.
There'll be no love hearts in my eyes when I'm facing him, just targets set on his chin.
"This fight won't be for the faint hearted, I am going all out to take Ormond apart,". "He says he'll have too much for me in every department, but I believe that I'm the bigger, stronger, better and more skilful fighter and it will show on the nigh[...]
I'm undefeated and I'll never shy away from a challenge, I love the challenge and someone like Ormond who comes in saying he's going to beat me makes me train and fight harder.
"Not one of them has come in to my mind at all,"
"Whether I come in their mind is a different story. But I haven't thought about any of them in the slightest. I don't care about what they're doing or how they're getting on, or how good they're doing or how bad they're doing. It's irrelevant to me.[...]
