JAMES DeGALE is convinced that the world title shot he has been dreaming about is just around the corner.

The WBC silver super-middleweight champion is hoping that victory over Dyah Davis next month will take him a massive step nearer a tilt at a world crown.

The 2008 Olympic gold medallist meets Davis at the Glow, Bluewater, in London on November 16 on a fight night that will be screened live on Channel 5.

And after losing just once in 16 professional contests, he feels he is ready to mix it in world title company.

The 27-year-old Londoner said: I know Im only a couple of fi ghts away from a world title, so I want to go in there and do a good job on him.

But, having said that, Im not looking past him. I give everyone I face respect and this is no different.

American Davis has 22 wins to his credit and two years ago faced the current WBC world supermiddleweight champion Sakio Bika for the vacant WBO inter-continental title.

Davis lasted until the final round of that contest and DeGale knows that he will be a tough nut to crack.

He said: Lets be fair, hes been in with some top fighters like Bika, so I know I will have to get in there and be at my best against him.

I think that, by doing a thorough job on him, I will be making a statement and it will show that I am world class.

I see Davis as a really good test and Iwant to get in there and stick on a great performance for all the fans and do agood job.

Im going to go in there full of confidence, Im going to be super fit and Im basically going to go in there to try and get him out of there.

Davis said: Im very excited to be facing DeGale. I know what Im up against going into his backyard.

Ive been in this position before and Im going to do everything I can to come out victorious.

I did it before against Marcus Johnson, where I was the underdog and going into the fight as the sacrificial lamb against an undefeated fighter and I caused the upset.

Im looking to do that again this time out.

This will be third fight of 2013 for DeGale after demolishing Sebastien Demers inside two rounds on his North American debut and his confident stoppage win over Stjepan Bozic in his last fight.
