Jamie Mitchell vs Carly Skelly Press Conference Quotes
Jamie Mitchell defends her WBA World Bantamweight title against Carly Skelly this Saturday February 5 at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, live worldwide on DAZN.
“I am definitely ready to defend my title, it’s going to be a great night.
“You cannot doubt yourself no matter whether you are chosen as an opponent or you are the A-side. I knew I was going to go in there against Shannon Courtenay and do what I had to do. I have tremendous coaches and a great manager, and the belief I have in myself is phenomenal, so I have all the confidence I need to be a World champion.
“Carly is a great opponent for me, but I am going to show everybody why I am a World champion. Nothing has been given to me at all, I am going to go out and show my skills and capabilities.
“I’m not giving up nothing but ass-whoopings – no-one is getting this belt.”
“It’s come from nowhere getting this shot and I am absolutely made up for it. It’s an opportunity that I am going to take with both hands.
“As soon as I saw the message about the fight, I didn’t even process it, I 100 per cent wanted this fight. I was at the fight in Liverpool when Jamie and Shannon fought, and I wanted to call out the winner for a fight that I want and one I can win.
“I have been given a draw before that I didn’t agree with, so I know that I have to go and give everything to win that belt. I am a fighter, I am going to come forward and make it hard work, I’ve got so much more about me than just work rate, I’ve got skills and I am going to show it all on Saturday.”
