“There’s excitement there for definite with it being a Northeast derby, it definitely adds to the tension,” said Kirk. “I’m very confident of winning and I wouldn’t be in this fight otherwise. I have a lot of respect for Paul and I look forward to us getting the gloves on.”
“I’m delighted to have made this match,” explained Jeffries. “Credit to both lads for taking it. I really can’t pick a winner, I think it’s that close, and I’m absolutely positive this could be a fight of the year contender. Paul is known for being very game and skilful, but Kirk is very strong and will give it everything.”
