Cook: Me and Mitchell Will Do a Job on Murray, Burns

Nicky Cook has warned English rival Ricky Burns that he'll be on the wrong end of a Cockney revival on July 16.

The pair meet for the Scotsman's WBO World Super-Featherweight title at the Liverpool Echo Arena, live on Sky Sports 1HD.

Cook says he'll be bringing the world title back to east London - and Mitchell will win his big fight against John Murray.

A week earlier, Cook's former gym-mate Mitchell will attempt to reignite his career with a win against John Murray at the Excel in London.

And Cookie is promising a spectacular against-the-odds double for the east end.

"I'm concentrating on my world title fight against Burns and I'm sure Mitchell will do the job against Murray," said Cook.

"I fancy Kevin's chances, and there is only one winner in my fight with Burns as far as I'm concerned,"

"This is my opportunity to set the record straight after my loss to Roman Martinez,"

"I'm hungry at the moment, and a hungry fighter is a dangerous fighter,"

"But I'll be going into my fight against Burns on a real high, whatever happens with Mitchell-Murray.

"I've not felt this good in training in a long, long time.

"My camp in Tenerife so far has been great, and I think the next couple of weeks will be even better as I fine tune my preparations.

"I've been written off a few times since that Martinez loss, but if Ricky Burns underestimates me he is in for a massive shock because I'm going to Liverpool to knock him out."

Tickets, priced at £50, £80 and £100, are available on 0844 8000 400 or www.echoarena.com
