What they said
Josh Warrington: I’ve proven in my last two fights that I’m a world champion for a reason
“All of a sudden people are saying I am capable of beating every featherweight in the world and with that comes expectation.
“I will go into this fight as the bookies’ favourite, but I will be 100 per cent focused and looking to do a job.”
Kid Galahad: “I haven’t been preparing for this fight for the last 12 weeks like [Warrington] has. I’ve been preparing for this fight since I was 12, 13 years old. I’m more than ready for this. I believe this is destiny.
“It’s meant to be. It’s written. It was written for Josh Warrington to beat Lee Selby and Carl Frampton and I think when he beat them he had 26 fights. 2018 was a great year for him, but 2019 there’s a hungry young lion called Kid Galahad and 2019 is going to be my year.”
