Sutherland and Barnes enter the Olympic Ring

August 16, 2008

“They’re looking forward to it,” he said. “They are two very exciting fighters. Darren is very, very explosive and I think he could set this place alight, hopefully; Paddy has got a very tricky opponent, he’s tall and a southpaw from Ecuador. He moves well which will make it difficult for Paddy.

“Darren has a tough opponent, he is very physical but that will suit Darren. He likes that and hopefully we’ll have better results tomorrow.

“Lead hands aren’t scoring that well here. It’s really about driving the head back. Hopefully we’ll see Darren Sutherland’s lead hand scoring because he has a really good jab which can drive people’s head back. Hopefully we will see that score which would be a big plus for him. But, with jabs, it’s difficult to say the least.”
