The former WBA #5 claims he wasn’t at the peak of his powers when he last fought with a title on the line.
Indeed, the Dubliner claims he was a ‘shell of a man’ when he put his world ranking on the line against IBF European title points defeat to Akeem Ennis Brown.
However, he is back to his ‘Super’ best ahead of the Dublin Belfast derby and is confident of picking up the the WBC International light welterweight crown at the Ulster Hall.
“Fans can expect ‘Super’ Foley from now on. Against Brown, I was just ‘Average’ Foley. It’s time to show who I really am,” said Foley before revealing the Brown fight still hurts.
“I just want to win, win, and win some more now because the pain of losing that fight is still fresh in my mind.
“I had two fights in Scotland and London that were very frustrating but my tour of the British and Irish isles continues and Belfast is the next stop. I’m excited.”
“I’ve learned a lot about myself recently – not just about fighting. When I fought Brown, I was a shell of the man I really am due to various things. They all form an excuse but I don’t want to go into it. Maybe I’ll talk about it after this fight.
“All I’m fixated on right now is Tyrone McKenna. This is the most exciting all-Irish title fight on paper in years and I’m up for creating history in there.”
