Matty Askin believes he is ready to face British cruiserweight champion - Robert Norton.
Askin boxes an eight rounder in his hometown at Blackpool Tower on Friday 19th August against a selected opponent, and hopes victory will lead towards a Norton challenge.
Askin, 22, has won all ten professional wins and said: “I seriously think that I can challenge Robert Norton in the next 9-12 months and that I will beat him.
“I have changed gyms and to be honest feel so good that I believe I could beat him now if we met, but first I have a serious test in Blackpool.
“The more fights I get and extra rounds under my belt the better. I have only had ten fights and Norton is a seasoned pro, but I have the tools to beat him.”
In the bill-topper Matthew Hatton faces unbeaten Belarussian Andre Abramenka for the the vacant IBF intercontinental title.
Other prospects on the bill include welterweight hopeful Adam Little.
