Barry AKA

MR. SMITHY

He is in fantastic shape, it’s like he’s gone to another level now. He’s knuckled down, he is like a diferent person, he wanted to out here to TKO Gym and boy he prooved himself, and gym observers could not believe the young Maltese fighter take it up with ex WBO, IBO, WBA and British Champions .

They’re happy with it and I’m happy with it, especially Steve Martin, he’s very committed to the game and I love that in him.

He’s a hundred and ten percent up for this, he’s paying for me to fly me out there out of his own pocket. I have to tell you, I think he’s gonna win, he’s got balls the size of your head he has.

I’ll tell you something else, for someone that coaches himself, he’s so fit, he’s really fit and very dedicated.

Now he’s got a new management team, he must be buzzing off it, obviously that’s why he’s called me up, so he can have someone professional in the corner with him.

On Friday I think Steve will win, and I’m looking forward to celebrating with Team Super afterwards.”
