Barry McGuigan transcript:

I can understand why Parker’s team would be concerned having a British referee and, with the greatest of respect, Terry O’Connor is, I’ve got to be careful what I say, he’s a decent referee. Im not so sure he should be handling a world heavyweight title fight. But I will believe that the board of control will make sure that he’s fair. They’ll make sure that he’s fair and I have that type of faith in the Board of Control. I know Robert Smith and all the team. They’re a very, very solid, decent bunch of people. They will make sure it’s a fair fight, even though it’s in the UK, they will make sure all of the decisions are fair.

The Board of Control are very honourable people. I had the same worries and concerns when we went to New York for when Carl Frampton fought Leo Santa Cruz and I stressed with the New York State Athletic Association we’d get the right officials and just like the British Boxing Board of Control, and the Nevada State Athletic Association, they are three of the best organisations in the world and they’re fair so Joseph will get a fair deal here.
