The fighters went head to head on Wednesday before Friday's all-important fight night, and here's what everybody had to say.

Gwynne said: "I've put everything into this camp, and I'm leaving on Friday with two belts wrapped around my waist. I can't wait and I wish it was tomorrow. I just want to get in there and fight.

"I think it will be a fight of two halves. One of my strongpoints is my stamina and I could probably do 24 rounds if I needed to. I've always believed in myself, and that's what's got me this third crack at the British title.

Gavin Gwynne takes on Luke Willis in what could be a historic night. The British and Commonwealth lightweight titles will be up for grabs at York Hall and if Gwynne manages to get the win, he'll be the first British champion from Merthyr, Wales, in over 40 years.

Pierce O'Leary is back and he is one of the most exciting prospects we have on the roster, and he's one of the nicest kids you'll meet too. After this it will be titles next, and he's going all the way.

"Jimmy Croxson is making his debut, and I've known him since he was a kid, he's grown into a man now, and I'm excited to see him make his professional debut. He'll admit himself he wasn't very good when he started, but he's trained hard and put his whole life into boxing.

"Carl Fail is one of the best young prospects in British boxing. He was on Team GB and is now 5-0 already having taken on some tough tests. He's got another difficult opponent this week, and then we'll maybe look at a Southern Area title eliminator next.

"Dean Richardson has had two years out, but now he's signed with MTK Global and we're looking forward to getting him straight out and then into championship fights in the summer."
