Nick Campbell has labelled his fight on Saturday night as a ‘massive night’ in his professional boxing career as he is set to fight for the Scottish Heavyweight Title.
Dan Andrade caught up with Campbell and asked him some quick fire questions ahead of the fight!
How exciting is it to be back in the ring this weekend?
I’m buzzing, fighting in my home town in front of a packed out arena. It’s going to be an incredible occasion!
How has training gone? How hard have you worked and how are you physically feeling?
Training has gone great. I’ve sparred 85 rounds over the past 8 weeks and I’ve left no stone unturned in preparation for this fight!
Mentally, it is a big occasion! How do you prepare for it?
Like I do for any other fight. Train to the best of my ability and know going into it that I’ve put my all into preparation. The pressure and nerves of the occasion will help me perform on the night. If I wasn’t nervous I would be worried!
It is the first Scottish Heavyweight Title fight in 71 years! How much of a privilege is it to be involved!
It means everything to me, I’m a proud Scotsman and the fact I am getting to contest for the belt in my home city is even more special.
How much do you know about your opponent?
I know a lot about Jay, he’s definitely a character but in my mind this isn’t about my opponent it’s about what I am going out to do and the game plan I’ve put together.
Just how hungry are you to come out victorious?
It’s all the matters. By any means necessary. Winning means everything.
How big a steppingstone would this be in your boxing career?
It is a massive night for me. I’m not really looking past it at the moment. It will definitely be the toughest night of my professional career so far.
When is it, and how can people watch?
It’s live on Sky Sports 26th February, tune in from 7pm. Any supporters in Jersey can get to Chambers in the town where there will be a fan zone!!
