DYAH DAVIS is aiming to use James DeGale as a stepping stone in his bid to get back into the world title mix. The American meets WBC silver super-middleweight belt holder DeGale at Bluewater in Kent on Saturday.

Although 2008 Olympic gold medallist ­DeGale, 27, is a firm favorite, Davis is ­certain he can cause a surprise.

The 32-year-old lost in the final round against WBC champion Sakio Bika last year. Now the son of 1976 Olympic champ Howard Davis Jr wants another shot.

He said: “When I met Sakio I wasn’t in the best of form. I had an injury but I took that fight because it was a great opportunity.

“Now I want to get right back up there. Fighting DeGale is my opportunity to get back to the world level. I’m very excited.”

Davis, a former North American Boxing Federation champ, has lost just three of his 26 pro contests with 10 knockouts.

But he knows it will be tough against ­DeGale who has one defeat in 17 pro bouts.

He said: “I know I’m up against it going into his backyard.

“I did it against Marcus Johnson in Texas, where I was the underdog and sacrificial lamb against an undefeated fighter – but I still won.

“I know I can do that again. I want his championship belt and all his positions in the world rankings and sanctioning bodies because I know that’s where I should be.

“I know what I’m up against, not ­being the favourite. When I’m in that ­position it just motivates me more to get the job done.

“I most definitely want to show James what it’s like to be in the ring with a world-class opponent.”

THE DeGale-Davis fight is live on ­Channel 5 this Saturday from 10pm.
