According to Sky Sports, the boxer said the following ahead of the fight:
‘It’s just excitement. I think I’m experienced enough, I’ve been through a lot of fights of this magnitude and at this level.
‘It’s a big fight. But it’s just another fight. Everything I’ve done in these 10 weeks I’ve got to go and put it together and make it right on the night.’
Famous and respectable Jones was present at the unveiling of a mural of herself not long ago. The fighter did not seem like she was prepared for retirement.
‘To be recognised and celebrated by the community that’s supported me all along my journey is something special,’ she said at the event.
‘The streets of Toxteth made me. I’m proud to be from these streets. I’m proud to be from Liverpool.
‘Growing up there were a lot of stereotypes about Toxteth and what you could be if you were from there. I’ve spent my whole life fighting those stereotypes.
‘I was just a little girl from these streets chasing my dreams. There’s been a lot of hard work and ups and downs along the way, but I’ve made those dreams come true.
‘Without these streets and without the support of the community, I would never have grown into the person I am now.
‘I hope this mural can help inspire more people like me and show that no matter where you’re from, what your circumstances are or what people say, you can achieve your dreams. Don’t let anyone tell you who you can become, that’s on you.’
The champion has made it clear that she was going to put her best into her match with Mayer on Friday.
