'Big Mac' ready to serve up a KO
Danny McIntosh says he is confident of defeating British light-heavyweight champion Tony Bellew when the two clash on Friday night.
The man nicknamed 'Big Mac' will be stepping on to Bellew's home turf when he faces the Liverpudlian at the Echo Arena and, despite being a former European champion, McIntosh is a big underdog.
Bellew comes into the fight off the back of his best performance to date when he narrowly lost a majority decision to Nathan Cleverley in their world title scrap last year.
The 29-year-old champion has been happy to talk up his own skills and says he doesn't expect McIntosh to match up to him when they step in the ring.
However, Norfolk-based fighter McIntosh says his time working at Ingles gym in Sheffield in the build-up to the fight has given him the edge and he is ready to put Bellew down.
"I think he's a great guy. He trains hard and has a great amateur pedigree, he's a brilliant boxer but I'm not friends with him at the moment, as you can tell. He's my enemy - we're sworn enemies until after the 27th," he told Sky Sports.
"People are entitled to their opinions but I've never quit in my life in anything, big or small. I think there are some words from Winston Churchill somewhere there! I'll never, ever, ever quit."
