With 9,000 tickets all sold for their WBA Super Bantamweight title clash tomorrow night at Dublin's 02 Arena, challenger Bernard Dunne and reigning champion Ricardo Cordoba made final statements to the press.
"This is the big one but I'm the underdog so there's no real pressure on me. I have everything to gain and he has everything to lose. The atmosphere in The O2 is going to be fantastic.
"My training camp has been the hardest of my career but I've really enjoyed it and the times flown. I just can't wait to get in there now on Saturday night and do the business and make it a great day for Irish sport.
"The title is coming back to Panama with me because I am not gong to give up this belt. I have worked too hard to become World Champion to just throw it all away.
"I'm very confident and I feel in great shape. In fact this last time I felt as good before a fight was when I beat Celestino Caballero back in 2004 so if that's anything to go by Dunne is in a lot of trouble.
