Bernard Dunne Quote: "This is the big one but I'm the underdog so
there's no real pressure on me. I have everything to gain and he has
everything to lose. The atomsphere in The O2 is going to be
fantastic. My training camp has been the hardest of my career but
I've really enjoyed it and the times flown. I just can't wait to get
in there now on Saturday night and do the business and make it a
great day for Irish sport."
Ricardo Cordoba Quote: "The title is coming back to Panama with me
becuase I am not gong to give up this belt. I have worked too hard
to become World Champion to just throw it all away. I'm very
confident and I feel in great shape. In fact this last time I felt
as good before a fight was when I beat Celestino Caballero back in
2004 so if that's anything to go by Dunne is in a lot of trouble."
