"I'm feeling really good, I don't have any major injury concerns or anything," he said ahead of yesterday's weigh-in. "Eve though it's been four months it's been a good preparation."

McAndrew said he expected Atom to come out swinging in the first round.

"That's how he won his last fight, he put them on the back foot, but I don't think his striking is that good.

"I'll be ready."
