RA: Yeah this is my second fight since I returned back in June and I plan to be as active as possible now I’m back.
RA: The fight with Jay got stopped in the 2nd round, I found I was to strong for him in the clinch and just shut down any of his weapons on the outside and didn’t allow him to do anything he wanted.
FR: Your opponent is coming off a big win back home in Ireland, which means his confidence will be high going in, how have things been for you in the run up to the fight?
RA: Yeah my opponent had a good win a few weeks ago in Ireland, but that’s Ireland and wasn’t against me.
RA: The roar card is looking strong and I’m lucky enough to be top of the bill and to be fighting for one of their European title, it’s a real honour I’ll be to busy getting ready to see any of the other fights sadly, but if I could watch any it would be Liam, he’s always entertaining.
RA: As for the rest of the year I’m off to Thailand for the whole of Dec to train and relax with the wife. Then I will be coming back for the start of Jan and straight back into training with something big in the pipeline.
