“It will be another big win for myself,” predicted Davies, 27. “I just see myself on this big rollercoaster now going higher and higher and I proved myself last year, even though people doubted me.
“People still doubt me, but I am just taking each fight as it comes, looking to win and I want a world title,” added the Telford favourite, who went on to explain the thinking behind his recent social media exchange with Cunningham where a sparring story was revealed and denied.
“You know, for me, it is to make sure we keep people interested because I sell a lot of tickets. We spared and he said we didn’t. I wouldn’t make it up! I’ve got no reason to. Everyone knows what’s going to happen anyway, everyone knows I’m going to beat him.”
The 33-year-old Cunningham, known as ‘The Iceman’, naturally views things differently.
“It has been some time coming and we are clearly the top two super bantamweights, as it stands, with Queensberry, so we will see who is No.1,” reasoned the southpaw.
“I am just chomping at the bit, I am excited, and it is one of those fights, a big domestic fight and something to get my teeth stuck into and prove a point.
“There is a lot up for grabs with four belts and the last time I had this was with Brad Foster, so I am looking to do it all over again.
“It will be interesting to see what happens. Obviously, Liam has had a lot to say on camera about how he is gonna do this and gonna do that, so we will see if he backs it up.
“I have no idea about this sparring. Usually when you spar you have a picture. He mentioned Louis Norman and the only time I sparred with him and someone else was Rendall Munroe. If he is just saying these things for fun and games to sell the fight, then all good, but I have no recollection of that sparring happening.
“This is how he behaves but, the thing is, he is easy to wind up and easy to reel in. He is constantly biting so we will have a little bit of fun with this. The main thing for Liam is he needs to get cracking in the gym because he looks like he is carrying a bit of timber!
“It is probably a good job for him that the fight is in July. He said something about my age as well, but I have had longevity because I look after myself, which is something he needs to start doing. He needs to stop ballooning up, look after himself and I’ll see him on July 29.”
