We have yet to find the who, but it’s not just the where and the when we can be certain about when discussing Stephen Ormond’s August 5th IBF World title eliminator in Las Vegas.

‘The Rock’ claims you can be certain that he will emerge victorious and secure a shot at the lightweight IBF crown.

The 33 year old Celtic Warrior Gym puncher is adamantt that, after years of trying to force his way to the top, this is his ‘time’ and he is going to make the most it.

Ormond told The Echo that “I feel this is my time. I’ve had nothing handed to me and I’ve done it the hard way.”

“I’m putting everything possible into this fight and I really feel I can beat anyone in the World on my day.”

“The date for this fight has kept changing so really I’ve been training for the past three months and I’m ready for it.”

Describing the enormity of the bout, the Clondalkin fighter admits that “this is the big one.”

“What better place to fight for a shot at the World title than Las Vegas. It’ll be shown by ESPN and it’s a main bout.”

“I’ll definitely get a shot at a World title if I win. That’s the main reason why I signed up for it.”
