Abdul Khattab in Top Form For Chris Jenkinson

Abdul Khattab (6-0, 2 KOs) is in tip-top shape for the fight against Chris Jenkinson (6-12-1, 3 KOs) in Esbjerg April 12th after sparring with two of his mentors.
 
"I've had some great sparring and I’m in super shape," says Abdul Khattab.
 
The young middleweight has sparred with fellow stable mates Torben Keller and Mikkel Kessler ahead of his fight at the Nordic Fight Night.
 
"Torben is a skilled and clever boxer and very experienced. He is relaxed and knows how to distribute his energy over several rounds. I may be a little eager from time to time so that’s something I have to learn to control."
 
"Mikkel teaches me a lot. Mikkel can teach me everything."
 
Khattab on one hand, still has much to learn, and on the other hand has a lot to live up to. The documentary 'Shadowboxer ' helped to create a lot of attention around the Copenhagen boxer.
 
"Of course I feel the pressure. There is a movie made about me, and I have been called the greatest talent and so on. But I'm actually not that affected by it. I like the movie, but it’s time to move on."
 
At home there is also some amount of pressure. Khattab comes from a family that, to put it mildly, is mad about boxing. He has four brothers, all boxers, and his parents following him closely.
 
"We are talking nothing but boxing at home. My father has always been there and my mother has always supported me, even though she’s pretty nervous when I fight."
 
Khattab is cool and calm looking at the near future.
 
"I have lots of patience. There's no rush to get a title shot. One fight at a time."
 
The Nordic Fight Night in Esbjerg is available to watch from 17.30 on TV3 Sport2 and TV3+ from 21.00.
