Frankly Speaking

07 July 2008 – by Mark Doyle

Jamie Moore has long been avoided by the light-middleweight divisions finest and that is why the Salford star is hoping that John Duddy succeeds in his bid for world title glory later this year.

Duddy is poised to face IBF champion Verno Phillips in October and Moore is desperate for the New York-based Derry boxer to triumph as he feels he would readily agree to fight him.

Lets face it: John Duddy doesnt give me a second thought at this moment in time, Moore is quoted as saying by The Irish Sun.

But if he wins Phillips belt he will look around fro someone to defend it against and Ill be first in the queue.

It is a fight that would pack out any venue in the world. If it does happen, I would like to see it go ahead in Madison Square Garden on St Patricks weekend. What a scrap that would be!

Moore, whose mother hails from Kilkenny, claimed the Irish light-middleweight title with a confident and assured third-round stoppage of Ciaran Healy in Dublin on Saturday night.

The 29-year-old Englishman is now set for a crack at European champion Zaurbek Baysangurov but, after that, Duddy will be the focus.

I am thrilled to have won an Irish title in Dublin and it is a very proud moment for me, More is quoted as saying by the Irish Examiner.

Im proud of my Irish roots and, hopefully, the can get behind me and push for a big fight with John Duddy, because that would be a massive fight.

I want to be in big fights and if thats the biggest fight out there then of course thats what Im looking for.

Im not shouting him out or bad-mouthing him, but as far as boxing goes, thats the biggest fight out there for the Irish public at light-middle.
