Australian-based boxing journalist Anthony Cocks has been covering the sport for over 15 years for various print and online publications. He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

Heavyweight Tom Little 10-5 (3) is confident that he can upset the applecart when he takes on hot property Daniel “Dynamite” Dubois 7-0 (7) for the vacant BBBofC English heavyweight title this Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London on the undercard of Martin Murray versus Roberto Garcia.

Not only that, he insists he will make Dubois quit.

“It feels like I’ve got the chance I have been crying out for,” the 30-year-old from Hatfield told British Boxing News. “This is my shot, this is my now or never.

“I’ve never been looked after as a fighter. I’m pretty sure once I upset the applecart and show people exactly what I am capable of, I will be looked after a lot better.

“I think you have hit the nail on the head – this is my Golden Ticket. I’ve been offered other fights, but this is the one where I know I can excel and pull off stuff that I’ve known for a long time I can do.”

After telling anyone who will listen that he’s got the measure of just about every heavyweight on the British domestic scene, Little knows he will have to back that up on Saturday night.

“Listen, one hundred per cent, I am in for a world of torment if this goes wrong, but I know it ain’t gonna go wrong,” continued Little.

“I know I laugh and I joke and I am very antagonising in some respects. I also know I am in for the fight of my life and don’t for one minute think I am in for an easy night.

“What I do know is that I am willing to go to where I need to go to get the win and I also know that Daniel is not. Daniel is not ready to go to where I am ready to go to.

“Because of his age and his experience, I know he will quit. I am not going to say too much more than that, but I know he has got quit in him and I haven’t.

“He is used to smashing people on the chin or his opponents being beaten before they get in the ring with him. I wouldn’t be bothered about facing Daniel if he had a shotgun in his hand.

“That might be stupid but it is the way I am wired up. I can’t change the way I am and I believe that styles make fights. Daniel’s style suits mine.”
