"So he has that top ten ranking with the IBF, but he will be the seventh undefeated fighter I've faced.

"So I'm not new to undefeated fighters and taking those 0s. I'm excited I've got this opportunity to get back to where I belong.

"I certainly want to be fighting for and winning world titles and every fight that's gone by, I've improved.

"We haven't always seen that in the ring when it comes with all the lights, camera, action but I will be showcasing that on Saturday night."
