SQ:I first heard about it on Friday just gone, and was really pleased to know that it’s now an eliminator, a win could mean, I could be fighting for the ultimate prize, which everybody starts boxing to achieve a world title, hopefully within two fights so.”
BB: Fans would say this is your toughest test so far against Varela?
BB: You are the mandotary challenger for Jason Booth’s British title, is that fight going to happen this year?
SQ: The Booth fight is supposed to take place by the end of October. So If I come through my next fight fine, then I will still be fighting Jason. I would like to win the British title, so the fight with Jason would also give me a very good indication were I’m at, because he is a very good fighter who I respect alot. He’s achieved alot and also fought for a world title, so to fight someone like Jason is only gonna make me a better fighter and prepare me for bigger fights. But as I said I would have to be well on the top of my game to beat him and I expect a very tough fight when I fight Jason. But I’m focussed on Varela first because any slip up’s against him, then I’m back to square one and having to rebuild.
Good to speak to you Scott and good luck in the fight and all the very best in your career.
