What was said?
Wood: “I couldn’t be happier with my side going into this fight. I have the best version of Mick and he has the best version of me. And the better man will win.
“I’m also going to go further than that. Eddie (Hearn) dangled the carrot in front of me in a fight at Nottingham Forest. After that fight, it’s happening.
“I believe I’m defending my title. People thanked me for facing Can Xu and didn’t expect me to win, but I always knew I would win.
“I’ve always been confident. In the gym, through injuries, and I’m confident in my abilities.”
Conlan“I’m very confident and very relaxed – that comes from my preparation.
“I know what kind of performance is coming Saturday night. I’m in his backyard and I’m here to rip his belt off.
