“I’m pretty confident and I’m going out to stop him and get the win. I’ve worked so hard for it and it’s the best I’ve felt for a long time.

“I want to go into the ring and smash him out of there as quick as I can.”

There are several other bouts on the card on Saturday, with another Worthing boxer Lee Jenman, Lloyd Ellett, Ian Lewison, Nick Jenman and Marcus Eaton also in action.
