Iain Butcher: Quaye will find out I punch a lot harder than him

Ringnews24.com: You were trained exclusively by your brother Eddie but recently added MGM ‘s Danny Vaughan to your camp as head trainer; how do the two work together?

They both them work off each other at the moment. Danny is just picking up on things Eddie has been doing with me, and putting his bit into what he thinks could progress me as a fighter. Danny is the main man now but my brother will still be in my corner for every fight. Danny was happy for Eddie to still be a part of the team.

Ringnews24.com: Since switching trainers what have you been working on most? and how are you adapting to the change of routine?

I always worry about punch power because any man in between those ropes can get hurt, but that’s only on paper; wait till fight night and Quaye will find out I punch a lot harder than him.

I’ve been mixing up my sparring. I’ve been doing rounds in MGM gym and I went down to Liverpool. I am now back home with my last couple of spars, so loads of different boys helped me out – thanks to them.

Ringnews24.com: Have you seen much footage of Quaye and what do you think of him as a fighter?

Only seen him fight Kevin Satchell because you are only as good as your last fight! I think he’s tough and awkward to hit but he is there to be hurt as the fight goes on longer.

Ringnews24.com: After your victory, are there any fighters you would like to call out?

After this fight my next fight will be for the British title against whoever the board give me to box. I don’t need to call anyone out – they need me more than I need them – but I’ll box anyone in Britain or Europe.

Ringnews24.com: Is there any new news on your rematch with Kevin Satchell?
