The undercard press conference for Saturday’s sell-out Manchester Arena show topped by Ricky Hatton’s comeback fight Vyacheslav Senchenko took place today at the Hard Rock Café in the city centre.

RICHARD POXON (Hatton Promotions, Director of Boxing)

“This is the best undercard we have put together and the title fights are all top quality. They are top quality and eagerly awaited domestic fights.”


MARTIN MURRAY v JORGE NAVARRO (vacant WBA interim middleweight title)


“People have been talking about me boxing Sergio Martinez, but I am not even thinking of that. My manager Neil Marsh keeps that talk away from me. I have a very hard fight this weekend and just want to get a win. Navarro is young, ambitious and can punch.”


SCOTT QUIGG v RENDALL MUNROE (vacant WBA interim super-bantamweight title)


“It was frustrating what happened that our first fight ended in a technical draw, and I’m just glad it has been made again. I can’t think of anything bigger in boxing than to be on Ricky Hatton’s undercard. For me to say my fight might end up fight of the night is great.”


“I am looking forward to the fight and training has gone good. I do my talking in the ring and I am going to go out and do the buisness. People are tipping Scott because he is younger but look at the higher quality opponents I have faced.”


SERGEY RABCHENKO v CEDRIC VITU (European light-middleweight title and vacant WBC silver belt)


“Training has gone very well in Manchester with Ricky Hatton training me. My opponent has great experience, but I have the skills and technique to win. My tactics are spot on.”


GARY BUCKLAND v STEPHEN FOSTER JR (British super-featherweight title)


“I am not under-estimating Stephen because he is a very good box-fighter. I have got to go in there and do what I normally do. We were going to fight him when he was European champion, but he lost to Ermano Fegatilli. We have been after this fight for two years.”


“With hindsight I shouldn’t have gone through with the Fegatilli fight because I wasn’t right at all. This camp has gone really well with Maurice Core training me. I know I am in for a tough night but I am confident.”


Also in action are Hatton Promotions hopefuls Ashley Theophane, Zhanat Zhakiyanov James Dickens, Adam Etches,  Scott Jenkins, Mitch Buckland and Sam O’Maison.
