“When I was first asked about it, it was for a charity fight and I was under the impression it was going to be an exhibition bout where you wore the bigger gloves and you wore a head gear.
“I have since found out it’s a professional fight and Junior Paulo has, I wouldn’t say chased the fight but he’s said that he wanted to fight me so obviously he thinks he can beat me.
“It’s certainly put a bit of an edge on my training. I’m certainly training hard enough to make sure I’ll be ready for the fight.
“I’m fired up to beat him.”
