Jason Booth: I'll Show Quigg I'm Not Finished Yet!

Jason Booth insists there is still plenty of life left in his amazing career. The British Super-Bantamweight champion outs his title on the line for the fifth time against unbeaten prospect Scott Quigg, live on Saturday night on Sky Sports HD. It will be the 44th professional outing of the Nottingham man's life, which has seen a long-standing battle with alcoholism out of the ring at times take over a successful time in it, in which he lost his only world title tilt, but has dominated domestically.

Booth in fact, comes into this on the back of his first stoppage loss against Kiko Martinez in an April crack at the European title. He was boxing in the champion's backyard in Spain and complained about being messed around and having the fight put back until the early hours of the morning.

Ultimately though, he was counted out in the 10th round and with his 34th birthday just three weeks away, many believed the defeat would finally spell the end for a man who has had his fare share of ups and downs.

"On paper this looks like a dangerous fight for me," he told Ringside. "I've seen his record and I would think he's the hungriest fighter in Britain at the minute. He's got the Hattons behind him, they're all pushing him and doing the right things, he's got a perfect record, he's very strong, but I like a challenge like that.

"I've fought lads from that neck of the woods before who've got talent. I hope he brings it all to the table for me because he's young enough to do that. That's what I expect of him, I don't expect him to let me box his head off, I expect him to take it to me."

"I feel good. I think it's my 23rd title fight and I'm feeling great at this stage. Come Saturday night I'm going to show that I'm not quite finished yet. There's still life in the old dog."
