Ohara Davies plans to punish “quit” comments from Tom Farrell as he promised to produce the “easiest win” of his career this month.
‘Two Tanks’ is determined to put his first professional defeat to Josh Taylor behind him when he fights Farrell for the WBA International super-lightweight title in Liverpool on September 30, live on Sky Sports.
Farrell aimed a verbal attack at Davies this week, heavily criticising his stoppage defeat to Taylor, and the Hackney man is even more motivated to inflict a humbling loss on the hometown fighter.
“He is a nobody in boxing,” Davies told Sky Sports. “He’s finally got his chance and he’s going to use every opportunity he gets to try and disrespect and discredit me.
“After that comment, I’ve promised to everyone and myself that the fight won’t go past round six. If it gets to that, he’ll be lucky.
“I’m going to make sure that either the corner throws in the towel, or the referee stops it, 100 per cent.”
The Merseysider declared that “Scousers fight until the end”, but Davies believes Farrell will need a lot more than battling spirit when the first bell rings.
“This is going to be one of the easiest wins of my boxing career. This is a very easy fight for me.
“I could have my hands down for the whole of the fight and I won’t get knocked out. He hasn’t got any punching power whatsoever. He hasn’t got skills, he hasn’t got anything but fans, and his fans can’t fight for him.”
In a parting shot, Davies even promised to give his foe a consolation gift after ruining his 13-fight unbeaten record.
“After I knock him out, I will do him the biggest favour and buy him some hair dye, because he really needs it,” he said.
“The state of his hair is absolutely atrocious. During the fight, I’m going to try and keep my eyes off his hair.”
