McGirt too commented on the fact that realizing Sanchez was the opposing trainer made him “put his thinking cap on” for the first time in eight years.
“I had to focus on doing different things with Matthew to make sure that we win this fight come June 29. He's prepared now,” McGirt said.
Irish American light welterweight Danny O’Connor (20-1, 7 KOs) will feature on the undercard of the fight. The Framingham, Massachusetts, native will take on Hector Munoz (21-10, 14KOs) in a contest scheduled for eight rounds.
"I'm not fighting on HBO, but I hope to impress the people there on June 29. Maybe my next fight will be on television? I'm coming off an injury and itching to get back in the ring. I'm fighting a tough veteran in Munoz, who keeps coming forward with his in-your-face style,” said O’Connor in the lead up to the fight.
