Zelfa Barrett – “I Bring Entertainment, I Am Entertainment”

Last updated

Zelfa Barrett will be defending his Intercontinental Super-Featherweight Title against former World Champion Kiko Martinez at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday February 13th, live on Sky Sports in the UK and on DAZN in the U.S.

We were sent the following quotes directly from Matchroom Boxing, with Barrett discussing the bout against Martinez in just under two weeks.

‘He’s like a train. He’s just going to come straight at me” Zelfa Barrett began. “I respect him as a fighter, and where he’s been. I’m there to do a job and I’m there to win, to look good as well. I’ve not underestimated this guy whatsoever, I’ve been disciplined. I’ve sacrificed my life to get where I’m at now.”

“I know for a fact he’s going to come guns blazing” Barrett continued. “He’s going to be there every single second of every single round. We’re prepared for that. I can’t switch off. I’ve got to be focused on him. That’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to put on a spectacular performance.”

Zelfa Barrett then discussed how he and his team approaches fights. ‘We take every fight like it’s a World Title fight. My Uncle Pat makes sure of that anyway. The only time we didn’t is the time we got beat. When you compare that fight to other fights, that wasn’t Zelfa Barrett. Every fight is important, every day is important, every session is important, every round is important.”

Barrett finished by saying how he is going to bring the entertainment factor. ‘Blood, tears, sweat and knockouts. That’s what you can expect to see. That’s what I bring. This is what people want to see. If it’s going to be a 12-round masterclass then people will be intrigued by it too. I bring entertainment. I am entertainment. I’m there to put on a performance and be classy.”
