Price vs McDermott: Pre-Fight Interview with John McDermott (Video)

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Q: Have there been any changes you've made to training to come up against someone of his height?

McDermott: No, no. I've boxed Tyson Fury twice, and obviously if you're trying for someone taller, you get taller sparring, but it's gone well.

Q: At the press conference you said this may be your last chance--

McDermott: Well, if I don't win this fight, I don't want to be hanging around getting Southern Area title fights and English title fights. If I'm not going to be the best in England, I don't want to be here. There's no point in boxing. So I've trained like this is my last fight. I'm going to show you, I'll fight my hardest, fight my heart out.

Q: Do you have a prediction for us?

McDermott: It'll be a great fight, and praise God, I win.
