You’re a world champion with a huge win against [Lee] Selby but it seems like the Carl Frampton win has taken you to a new level. Is that something you’ve felt as well?

No, no different now. Nothing new but in terms you know just scrolling through social media and seeing folks’ comments and how they’re holding me to a different light now. 12 months ago I was on nobody’s pound-for-pound list and all of a sudden I’m one of the best fighter’s the country’s produced. So it’s funny how it’s working out. I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do, fight the big names and prove myself.

I don’t think I’ll stop there, I want to keep that going and now create a legacy
