Joe Cordina: "I won my first professional title here in Cardiff on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's win over Joseph Parker at the Principality Stadium and it's good to be making the first defence of it here as well. I'm in a proper fight now. Sean is great fighter, he's got a lot of heart and he's got a great fanbase that will be making a lot of noise on Saturday. It's going to be a hell of a fight. This will be my hardest fight in the professionals to date. There's going to be fireworks. I'm going to give it everything I have to come away with the Commonwealth title. I'm fighting for my kids and there's no way that I'm wasting this opportunity."

Sean Dodd: "I'm looking forward to getting back to winning ways and getting my hands back on the Commonwealth title. I'm ready to make a big change and put in a good performance. I can see that Joe has a great family backing him so it's just like being back at home for me, it's nice to see. I wish the very best for the both of us. I need to stick to my game plan, work hard and get the win. This is a massive test for me and I'm really looking forward to getting in there and seeing what happens. I'm up against it but in life you get nowhere without taking risks. I'm ready for this."
