St Albans middleweight Myley Cash hopes to get fight fans across Europe talking about him next month.
The 22 year-old fights on a show at Harrow Leisure Centre on Saturday, February 21 that will be screened live on Eurosport. The show will be beamed into homes in 70 countries across Europe - and Cash wants to impress a massive TV audience.
Cash, who’s targeting a fourth straight win, said: “In boxing, raising your profile is so important. If people don’t know who you are or don’t like you, they won’t come to watch you and that makes it hard.
“But I think people will like me. I’ve got a style that I think people find nice to watch and I’m not the type to shout my mouth off.
“I don’t go around saying what I’m going to do. I just go in there and try to do my best and if that’s not good enough, I go away and try to get things right next time.”

Cash admitted preparations for his comeback fight last November were far from perfect. He picked up a knee injury that stopped him running in the countdown to his fight with Dan Blackwell, but he still won every round on the referee’s scorecard at the Camden Centre.
Cash said: “I couldn’t step it up because I knew I wasn’t 100 per-cent fit. I had to just pace myself, so I stuck to my boxing and won every round.”

Cash was a top amateur - he reached four national finals - and says he’s ready for a massive year in his ring career.
He said: “I’m hoping to box every six weeks and if I can do that and keep winning, I will soon be knocking on the door. I don’t want to walk around and tell people I’m a pro boxer or spend my whole career beating up journeymen. I want to see how far I can go.
“I have been fighting journeymen so far - but I’ve been fighting tough journeymen. I’m hoping to spar the best in the division this year and that will tell me more.”
