IBF cruiserweight champion Jai Opetaia (22-0, 17 KOs) and 6’6 challenger Jordan Thompson (15-0, 12 KOs) faced off at the final press conference ahead of their world title fight on Saturday night on DAZN from the OVO Arena in London.

Jai Opetaia: “We adapt as well, to all different styles. I’ve been boxing my whole life, I’ve earned this, it didn’t happen by accident. So Saturday night, we do it again. I want to collect all the cruiserweight titles. I’m winning this fight, however it happens, it happens.”

Jordan Thompson: “I can’t wait to go out there and claim what’s mine on Saturday night. We all know boxing and what it takes to become a world champion, I am going to take the belts off him and I am going to do it by knockout.”

  • Does anyone know about Thompson? Record looks good but I’m not sure who he’s fought. Looks to have power based on paper but again who knows?

  • Jai will chop the tall tree down, no way you beat someone like Briedis and then lose to this clown

  • How does Jordan make the weight? The guy looks like a big heavy. He actually looks as big as Joshua.

    • Roots-I would expect a 6-6″ Cruiserweight to be a bean poll, but this guy looks bigger than Opetaia plus 6″ taller! We’ll see come fight time, the scales don’t lie. What happens before and after the weigh- in is an entirely different story.
