Steven Butler's answers were unequivocal, and the determination and confidence is clearly evident;

I learnt a lot. I started boxing at 11 years old, now im 27, I have a lot of experience behind me and when I put it all together on Saturday night, Im gonna shock the world.

"Don't miss the fight on Saturday, I'm going to shock the world. He's making a big mistake when by thinking he's already beaten me. He has a big fight on his hands on Saturday, I'm going to hurt him, mark my words.
