JJ McDonagh said: “It’s a pleasure to come and see how things are done when preparing for a world title fight. I have world title ambitions of my own and if I can take even something small from this trip it will be a huge help to my career”

Kaz Evans, founder of Assassin Promotions said: “In boxing, it’s always best to train at the highest level, and for JJ this will bring him a lot of experience. He’s been drafted into this camp because he’s clearly a top fighter who fears no one and can trouble those operating at world level.”
