Kirkby light welterweight, Robbie Davies Jnr; was meant to be on holiday in Los Angeles. However when the chance to train at the Wild Card gym was presented to him, he just couldnt refuse.

Currently 6-0 (3 KOs) as a professional, after an international amateur career; the Liverpudlian will be back in the ring on the Oct 3 Coldwell Boxing Promotion at Deeside Leisure Centre and he is hoping his LA experience will help him progress from prospect to champion.

Speaking to BoxingScene.com recently, he said: I was originally supposed to be on holiday, but I couldnt turn down any opportunity to train at the Wild Card. One of the guys in there saw me hitting the bag and I was asked if I wanted to spar.

I came in the next day and sparred with Anton Novikov, who at the time was preparing to fight Jessie Vargas for the (WBA) world (light welterweight) title, as well as former world champion Antonio DeMarco and Jose Ramirez, who is 11-0. I more than held my own against all of them and it was great to get some rounds under my belt.

Davies Jnr is a rising star in British boxing, especially in his hometown of Liverpool, which is fast becoming the hotbed for the sport in the UK. Thereby, giving him great ambitions on the domestic front which he certainly feels he is ready for and can make the step up to the next level.

Im more than ready to go for titles and Im already pretty high up on the British rankings. Looking at those rankings Im higher than some people whove had more fights than me, but its because I dont just fight journeymen, I fight people with winning records as well.

My last fight with George Watson (8-6-2, 1 KO) in Deeside, was supposed to be a test but I dealt with him in a round. I like knocking people out and I want to get a reputation as someone who does that. Like Ive said before, I dont get paid for overtime.

He will be looking to move further up the rankings and is hoping that the co-promotional deal he is currently under with Matchroom and Coldwell Boxing will help him reach new heights.

Perhaps due to the agreement, after his fight in Deeside at the start of October, Davies revealed he has been pencilled in to fight on the undercard of Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverlys rematch at the end of November, should it be in Liverpool.

Its great to have that backing and Im going to keep pushing forward, starting with the October fight. I really want to be spread out around the country as well, and not just in the North West and Liverpool.

Its amazing to be on the big shows and Im grateful to both Eddie and Dave for all the work they do for me. This is going to be a really big year for me and Im looking forward to getting going again.
