Middleweight John Duddy (29-1, 18 KOs) will fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (40-0-1, 30 KOs) on Saturday at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas for the WBC silver middleweight title in the biggest fight of Duddy’s professional career.
The 31-year-old has a chance to reinvigorate his dream of fighting for a world title should he prevail against his popular Mexican opponent, and when the Irish Voice caught up with him on Sunday, the Derry native sounded eager for the scheduled 12-round fight to arrive.
“I am looking forward to this fight and getting my crack at this boy. It’s been a long build up, and the talk is coming to an end. Now is time for the punches to do the talking for me,” said Duddy.
