The 21-year-old has recorded six victories since turning professional three years ago and is fully expecting to make it seven when he clashes with Van Poetsch on Black Country Boxing’s Summer Scorcher show at Walsall Town Hall on Saturday, 9th July.

“I’m feeling fit and focussed,” he told “I need to fight more regularly now and build my record.

“I had a fight in March, against Luke Allon, and I felt strong. There’s plenty of room for improvement but I know there’s more to come.

“In my six pro fights to date, I’ve fought a range of opponents from bigger guys like Kieron Gray to tricky fighters like Matt Seawright. I’m learning the game all the time and I’m gaining confidence with each fight.

“I know Van Poetsch from the circuit. He’s a tough, durable and game lad. He’ll come for a fight and that’s what I like. It’s a good chance to showcase my power and skill. I’m confident of getting a seventh win.”
