I’ve had all different kinds of sparring for Daniel Dubois. I’ve had probably 10, 12 different sparring partners. So it’s gone really well. I’m getting 12 rounds out in the gym, fighting at a high pace. There’ll be no excuses. There’s been no injuries, when I walk out July 13 at the O2 every box is ticked and your mind’s clear. Ready to walk out into that fight, you know for a certain fact there’s no more you can possibly do. So I’m just counting down the days now. All the hard work’s basically done. We’re there now. We’re here.

I want the atmosphere to be really, really bouncing. I want it to be packed out. Because I’m going to thrive off that. That energy. I love that energy. Hopefully it’s buzzing. I’d love for the O2 to be packed out, first time ever to be walking out in a big massive arena and I want to absorb all that energy and use it.
