Lewis Crocker: Returning to Belfast so soon is remarkable. This time, I’m leading the event. The atmosphere in the city last month was electric, with both the fight week and night being memorable experiences. To repeat this so soon is extraordinary, especially against a tough competitor like him. He recently defeated Gary Cully, showing strength and skill in that fight. I anticipate an explosive showdown on Saturday. The last fight, being a Belfast versus Belfast scenario, held immense significance for me. Rating my performance, I’d say it was exemplary, as the stakes were personal. Winning in front of my friends and family was a thrilling experience that really put me on the map. Now, with the backing of Matchroom and DAZN, the dynamics have changed. The last fight week made me realize the magnitude of this stage. Being the main event next month shows their belief in me. I’m focused on Jose Felix, but a striking victory on Saturday paves the way for a significant year ahead. I expect an electrifying fight, as he seems to share my mindset. This fight feels more perilous than the McKenna one. While the McKenna fight was mentally taxing, the stakes are always high. Felix’s confidence from beating Cully makes him eager to create another upset in Ireland.

Jose Felix:

I’d like to express my gratitude to everyone here, to God, Matchroom for their continued support, and to Paco, my manager. I’m also thankful for the overwhelming support from the people of Ireland. It feels like I have more fans here than in Mexico. The upcoming fight is intriguing. My previous bout with Cully was a struggle due to weight management. Now, at 147, I’m better prepared and eager to impress Eddie Hearn and prove my potential as Matchroom’s next star. In the Cully fight, my main challenge was making weight, but now that pressure is off. I understand my opponent might try to capitalize on the weight factor, but I’m confident in securing a victory on Saturday and delivering an unforgettable show. Don’t miss this fight – both Crocker and I pack a punch, making it a must-watch. I’m incredibly grateful for the love and support I’ve received here, making me feel as if I’m in Mexico.

Cheavon Clarke:

Reflecting on Tommy McCarthy’s absence in your last fight, this Saturday will reveal if he’s my toughest challenge yet. He’s faced some reputable fighters in the British circuit but hasn’t always come out on top. This weekend, we’ll see the truth. I’ve only seen snippets of his fights and haven’t delved deeply into his career to form a judgment. His talk of fast-tracking doesn’t apply to me. I progress at my own pace, whereas he might have advanced more slowly. They assign me a fight, I believe in my victory, and I accept it. External negativity won’t influence the fight; it’s about professionalism and focus. As an experienced amateur who’s competed globally, I’m accustomed to challenging environments. I’m prepared for whatever energy comes my way on Saturday. McCarthy may be humorous, but it’s all about the energy in the ring. My approach is to maintain a positive attitude while delivering a powerful performance.
