What have the fighters had to say?
Anthony Fowler: “I am a level above Scott, I know that for a fact. I always have been. As soon as I was an amateur I was better than Scott and under Dave Coldwell I have just gone to the next level again.I’ll be fully prepared and whatever Scott does I’ve got an answer for. I am just a bigger, better, stronger fighter. Five rounds... he’s going to fall.”
Scott Fitzgerald: “It’s a fight that I’m really looking forward to. I always knew this fight was going to happen. I’m the underdog going into this fight which is fine by me. I feel like I’ve turned 27 and finally grown up. Every day I’m doing what has to be done and that’s not just in the gym, I’m coming home and eating the right things and enjoying doing it because I don’t want to lose this fight. I want to win it and I know I can win it.”
What channel is it on?
It will be broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK and streaming service DAZN in the US.
