What have they said?

James DeGale: "I expect him to be better than he was against Groves but his coach won't help him because he's too arrogant to listen to anybody.

"When things go down after six rounds, he will revert to type and go back to doing what he always does. He's not going to suddenly change into a different fighter."

Chris Eubank Jr: "I’m right at the the top of my game – and I want the city to shake with the impact of my punches. The only view that’s going to stick in his mind is looking up at me from the canvas after I lay him out."
