The long anticipated rematch from their May 2009 Commonwealth title bout is sure to pique the interest of the boxing public, with Oldham's Craig Watson promising revenge for the points defeat he suffered last time out at the York Hall.
Since their original encounter, Watson, 19-3 (KO 8), has enjoyed a run of stunning form, reeling off 6 straight wins, 4 by knockout, picking up the Commonwealth light middleweight title en-route.
However, O'Donnell, 24-1 (KO 11), does not appear concerned by his opponents recent success stating, '"Watson's last few opponents have not been in the same league as mine, most have been journeymen.''
With only one defeat in his career to date during his infamous Las Vegas adventure on the Mayweather-De La Hoya undercard, O'Donnell is understandably confident and is predicting a win whichever way it arrives.
"I'm not one for predicting rounds and jinxing myself, I am just focused on getting the win and that's exactly what I'm going to do," said the Shepards Bush fighter.
Rumours on internet forums of a disturbed training camp were also quickly quashed by O'Donnell who was more than happy with his preparation for the fight.
"I am 100% happy with my training camp, it's been brilliant. I'm in excellent shape and am more than ready for the fight," O'Donnell assured his fans.
O'Donnell also gave a brief mention to fellow Irish Paul McCloskey who takes on WBA light-welterweight champion Amir Khan in two months.
"Paul is a clever kid, I feel he has a great chance of upsetting the odds and bringing the world title home.
