Saturday February 1st, at the Motorpoint Arena, in Cardiff boxing fans are being treated to a fantastic bill of boxing headlined by Lee Selby vs Rendall Munroe for the EBU (European) featherweight and BBBofC British featherweight titles.

Eddie Hearn, of Matchroom Boxing, held a press conference, at Cardiff City Hall, earlier today and below are quotes from the boxers that took part including Gavin Rees, Gary Buckland, Tony Pace, Jason Cook, Lee Selby, Rendall Munroe, Anthony Joshua, Dorian Darch and Kerry Hope.

Eddie Hearn: I've got to say first...Thank You. We've been asked to come to Cardiff, for a while now and I was reluctant but the response has been fantastic. We will have a sold out arena on Saturday. I'm absolutely 'over the moon' that these fighters get a chance to box, in a wonderful venue, in front of a huge audience. Not just live but also exclusive on SkySports as well.

Rendall Munroe: A few people are looking at Rendall Munroe as a small super bantamweight, who had trouble with Scott Quigg - that wasn't the real Rendall Munroe, it was a weight drained Rendall Munroe. We're here to do what we're here to do and believe it or not I'm coming to upset the party in Cardiff.

Lee Selby: It's my time, I'd like to thank you (Eddie Hearn) and Matchroom for giving me such a massive opportunity, to perform infront of my home crowd. Rendall Munroe has no chance of beating me. On paper, it's the toughest fight, he's only lost to two World Champions, so this will be a good gauge - to see how good I really am. 

Kerry Hope: It's going to be a big year for myself, form hasn't been too good as of recent. Looking forward to fighting back home, in Wales, which I haven't done for a number of years. So, bringing my support down for Saturday night and it should be a great occasion especially with the Rugby {Wales vs Italy} on in the daytime as well.

Jason Cook: It's my last fight and it's a fight the Welsh public wanted, me vs Tony (Pace). You’ll all be aware that its not going to be for the Welsh light welterweight title. I thank Tony and respect him for taking the fight at catchweight. It's going to be a great fight and a fight I'm going to win in style. 

Tony Pace: I had a really good training camp, I've done everything which was need. A bit gutted that Jason didn't make the weight, for the Welsh title fight. But, hopefully now get another title shot or just a fight. I'm really looking forward to it and can't wait to show the Welsh public, and the UK, what I've got to bring.

Dorian Darch: I know it's a big ask (beating Joshua), I'm not a dreamer. It's going to be a tough fight for me. I've sold 230 tickets and I'm going to have a go in front of those fans.

Anthony Joshua: I had a good camp. Saturday will be a good evening for, me and Dorian, and everyone boxing. Dorians a tough contender and a step-up for me. I'm growing in confidence fight by fight and I just want to put in a good performance. I wish everyone the best of luck and see you all Saturday.

Gary Buckland: I'm ready to go. It's been a long-time coming. I'll just be glad for Saturday night to come.

Gavin Rees: Last couple of years, the scales have beaten me before I've gotten in the ring. The weights just flown-off this time, I've been dedicated over Christmas. I really believe, on Saturday night, I'll put on a great show. The people in the gym, always see a great Gavin Rees - On Saturday night the World will see how good I am.

The Weigh-in: Friday January 31, 1pm, City Hall, Cathays Park, Cardiff CF10 3ND – OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
