Boxer Ollie Pattison is gunning for his sixth professional victory as he faces Bulgarian Merdjidin Yuseinov at York Hall on Saturday in what will be his first six-round fight.
The 27-year-old light heavyweight from London Colney is hoping another success this weekend will lead to future title shots.
Speaking to the Herts Ad, ahead of his appearance on the Goodwin Boxing Bethnal Bedlam show, Pattison said: “Training has been going well, I’m moving up from four to six rounds so every camp we step up another level.
“I feel fit, strong and can’t wait.”
Of his 31-year-old opponent, he said: “I know he’s an experienced professional, he’s another step up. He will be cagey, rough and ready.”
