“We have Leigh Wood, we don’t really know how good this guy is. He came up short against [James] Dickens.

“But he can punch. He’s taken short money, he’s taken late notice fights and on Saturday night a Brit gets a chance to become world champion [the WBA world featherweight championship].

“This guy financially could completely change his life on Saturday.”
