Adam Etches Eyes Domestic Clash With Chris Eubank Jr.

SHEFFIELD puncher Adam Etches says he's ready to drop bombs on the best of British.

The unbeaten middleweight, 23, returns to action against as yet to be confirmed opponent at the Ponds Forge Arena in home city on April 26.

And afterwards he's targeting showdowns with the UK's best 11st 6lbs fighters.

"I know I haven't fought any of the top British fighters yet, but I believe I'm up there with them now and I'd be happy to fight any of them," Etches, 15-0 (12 KOs), said.

"I think Murray and Macklin are ahead of everyone else and Saunders is getting there, but after them three, I think I'm the next one up there.

"I know John Ryder and Jez Wilson are fighting each other in an eliminator and I think I could beat either of them comfortably. I don't see as being any better than I am.

"Most people's goal is to be a British champion, my goal is to be a world champion. Obviously, I'd like a British title at some point, but it's not my ultimate ambition."

As well as those boxers currently in or around domestic title class, there's also a fighter Etches wants to get his hands on due to public demand.

"I must get at least ten people a day asking when I'm going to fight Chris Eubank Jnr," Adam revealed.

"The public obviously want to see it and I think it can be built into a massive fight as long as we both keep winning.

"I think he's improving with each fight, but I'm not worried about him. It's a fight I could win and it'd help me move on to bigger things. I just pray he keeps winning and hopefully he'll take it at some point.

"We've both got good teams around us and neither of us needs to rush, but I certainly think it's a fight I'd win and it'd catapult me up the ratings."
