Jamie Robinson is looking to put things right after his December setback

Ringnews24.com: You have a fight coming up against Fergus Taylor. How did that fight come about and which other boxers were you looking at?
 
I told my manager Mike Shinfield I wanted a step up in rounds to either a 6 or 8 x 3-minute rounds as 4 x 3-minute rounds was too quick and fitness is a big part of my boxing.

My trainers are Grant Smith and Lee Jenkins. I train at the Steel City Gym in Sheffield and a private gym in Calow, Chesterfield.

I take one fight at a time and don’t look past any opponent (every dog has its day).
 
Ringnews24.com: You are currently in the middle of training; could you tell us a little about your camp?
 
I train three times-a-day six-days-a-week: 6:00am run, 11-1 gym and 6-8pm boxing gym.

Ringnews24.com: How is your training going and how would you compare it to previous camps?
 
Every boxer says the same, but this training camp I have been more determined and hungry after a little set back in December. I feel in the best shape of my professional career so far and I have improved a lot.

I would like to keep that behind closed doors but some very good sparring has been done.

I’ve seen bits but I leave that down to my trainers because that is their job – to worry about these things and work out game plans.

I’m going for the points but if the stoppage is there I’ll take it.

I haven’t got a clue, but hopefully it will be on YouTube.

Ringnews24.com: After your victory, are there any fighters that you would like to call out?
 
I’m not one of them boxers that call out people. I leave it down to my manager to sort out my fights;  I’ll fight anybody my manager tells me to.

Ringnews24.com: Do you have a message for the fans?
 
I’d like to say a massive thanks to all my supporters and all the people who have stuck by me after a little setback in December; words cant describe how much I appreciate the support,
