Mark Quon has labelled tomorrow’s super bantamweight Commonwealth title fight with Carl Frampton the biggest of his career.
The Down under fighter believes victory against the Barry McGuigan mentored Belfast prospect in the Oydssey arena can see him move up the boxing ratings and into the consciousness of the European boxing fraternity.
Quon is ‘super excited’ about fighting in Belfast tomorrow night and despite claiming he faces a quality opponent is ‘fairly confident’ he can become the first fighter to tame the ‘Jackal’.
“ I am super excited. Five days ago I was in Australia. I am in Belfast and a beautiful country now! This is a great chance for me and winning the Commonwealth title would mean a lot. As soon as I got the call I told them book my ticket and get me over here,” said Quon.
“This is the biggest fight of my life. This is what people dream off. I have watched Carl fight online a few times. I know he has a strong amateur background and he has six knock outs in ten fights. He can box and punch. He has a bit of everything, but I am pretty confident I can beat him. I will take it round by round and see how its goes.”
Unlike some bigger names like Willie Casey, Rendall Munroe amongst others the Aussie was more than willing to was take the fight at short notice.
Quon revealed he was already in training for September clash so was fit and he certainly ready to fight.
“You have to take opportunities when they are presented to you and this is a massive opportunity. I am a fighter. I can’t run I for chances like this I am in this game to fight. I had a fight in September which I was already training for so I am fit and prepared.”
