Leah McCourt says she is in "Rocky" training for her Bellator MMA featherweight fight against Janay Harding at the SSE Arena in Wembley in May.
'The Curse' McCourt (4-1) is set to take on New Zealand-born 'Hollowpoint' Harding (5-4) on the main card on Saturday, May 16.
Training at SBG Charlestown under the guidance of her coach Owen Roddy, McCourt has made a rapid rise towards the top of Bellator and she will aim to stretch her record to 5-1 when she tackles 25-year-old Harding.

But the main card, which also features James 'The Strabanimal' Gallagher, and his rival Cal 'Pacino' Ellenor from Sunderland as well as ex-rugby star James Haskell, could be in jeopardy due to the coronavirus pandemic.
I'm used to training in difficult circumstances being a single mum.
"I'm back into Rocky training," McCourt told Sky Sports News. "Obviously the gyms are closed but I have a boxing bag in my grandad's garage and I'm out doing sprints. I'm using the treadmill in my kitchen, I'm used to training in difficult circumstances being a single mum.
"Until I hear any different I'm training for that and looking forward to that event."
