“I’m extremely confident and I put a lot of my confidence down to my…boxing career.”
“I think every fight in every professional boxer’s career is equally as important. This one, because of the stage in my career, because of these two world titles, because it’s an immediate return against George Groves, has an air of importance.”
“This is by far the biggest fight of my unbelievable career.”
“Hardcore boxing fans know what I’m about. And when I turn up in the shape I’m in now, you’ve seen it time and time again against top competition, I’ve proved I can perform.”
“I know what I need to do and I know how to do it.”
“This couldn’t be more perfect really. I’m going to become World Champion in London.”
“56 hours seems a little too long for me right now.”
“I’m fortunate that I’m in that situation. Saturday night I will arrive, fully, properly. No stone will be left unturned. We are fully prepared.”
“It will be the left hook that finishes Carl Froch on Saturday night.”
“I could’ve gone 12 rounds the first time. The referee shouldn’t have stopped the fight. That’s why we’re here right now.”
