When asked about his win at the weekend, Jay, who is currently ranked #3 at 82.5kg, said;

“I’m feeling confident in myself after my win Saturday, it wasn’t my best performance but I still managed to come out on top even though my opponent had a weight advantage.”

Moving on to his next fight against Twins Academy’s Sam Brown, Jay added;

“I’m looking forward to showing what I can actually do come June. As for Sam, I don’t really know much about him or seen him fight, but I will expect to be getting in with a top class opponent.”

Brown, who beat John Wiggans at YOKKAO 31 back in October 2018 and impressed with a first-round stoppage over GTBA’s Andy Maguire at Victory IV in December, will be facing the current UK 82.5kg #5, Mike Moxon in a rematch at Roar 13 before the fight with Jay Steele in June.

A win over Mike Moxon would propel Brown into the top 5 in the UK at 82.5kg and will make for an exciting bout when he faces Steele in the co-main event at Champions Collide.

When asked about the upcoming fight with Jay, the Twins Academy heavy-hitter, Brown said;

“He’s got a very respectable record and and got a vast amount of experience over me, but it’s going to take him a lot more than that to get a result.”

Brown added, “His fight against Rob Allen said a lot about him for me; when the going gets tough, he doesn’t get going.”
