He who could guarantee himself a bronze medal by beating Brazilian Washington Silva next Tuesday, was delighted to maintain Ireland’s 100% record so far in Beijing.
‘I’ve two good fights under my belt now. I’m captain of the team, going back with another win,’ he said.
‘The whole idea is to keep leading this team into battle. I want to be the first one on the field and the last off it.’
‘I’m just going to treat it as another fight. We’ll do our homework and will have all the preparation done.’
