JJ Metcalf plans on grabbing hold of his opportunity with both hands when he faces Ted Cheeseman for the vacant British super-welterweight title this weekend.
Metcalf (21-0, 13 KOs) faces Cheeseman (16-2-1, 9 KOs) on the undercard of Alexander Povetkin’s rematch with Dillian Whyte at the Europa Point Sports Complex in Gibraltar on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Box Office and DAZN.
The Liverpool fighter has already won the Commonwealth title during his career, and he is excited to potentially add the British title to his collection.
Metcalf said: “It would mean a lot to me to win the British title. I’ve put a lot of hard work in and now it’s time to make all of that worthwhile.
“I’ve done a lot of sparring for this fight and that will put me in good stead. I’ve prepared for whatever Ted Cheeseman has got. I know he can box or he can fight, but I can do anything to combat that.
“I’m fit and I’ve got the rounds in against some good fighters. I can’t see myself having any ring rust on fight night, and when I get the win in this fight we’ll then look ahead to the future.”
Elsewhere on Saturday’s event, unbeaten fighters collide as Michael McKinson challenges Chris Kongo for the WBO Global welterweight title.
