JOE JOYCE - "I’m good, ready, had a good camp and incorporated what Adam Booth has taught me and I’m really excited because this is a big fight against a credible opponent.
"This is the biggest fight of my professional career so far. Let’s see if he runs or goes toe-to-toe.
"It might be 1-0 to him with Adam, but now is redemption. Adam has taught me not to be a sitting target and get my head off line.
"I want to continue my 100 percent KO ratio and go 10-0 all by knockouts. I will be happy for it not to go the distance, but I am happy going 12 rounds. I just want to line them up and knock them over.
"The winner of Dubois v Gorman is an option and hopefully I will have time to get changed and come out to watch it after my fight. It is a 50-50 fight. Dubois is very strong and if he lands you’re in trouble. Gorman is a lot slicker."
