Jason Welborn is ready get himself back in British Title contention and is predicting a convincing victory over Stanislav Nenkov on Friday evening.

The 28 year-old takes on tough Bulgarian Nenkov on EJKO Promotions MayDay show at Walsall Town Hall.

Welborn goes into the contest as favourite having lifted the British Masters Light Middleweight Title and Midlands Area equivalent in his last two fights thanks to victories over Birmingham duo Max Maxwell and Terry Carruthers respectively.

He now has his eyes on Liam Smiths British Title and believes a convincing performance on Friday will put him back in the frame.

I want a shot at the British Title at light middle, he told . I fought Frankie Gavin for the British (Title) at welterweight but now I know that light middle is a better weight for me.

I feel stronger and more powerful. Ive picked up a couple of titles since stepping up last year and now Im ready for another shot at the British title.

I saw Liam Smith at Liverpool on Saturday. He was doing some TV work and I was supporting Martin Gethin in his fight against Derry Mathews. I know I can beat him. Hes fighting Nav Mansouri in July and Id like the winner.

Im not taking Nenkov for granted though. Ive watched a couple of his fights and hes game. He comes to fight. The preparation for this fight has been the same as my last few fights. Ive worked as hard for this one as I did for Maxwell and Carruthers.

I need to put on a good performance Friday and show that he shouldnt be in the ring with me. I dont mean that disrespectfully, I just mean Ive got to show people that Im levels above him and that Im a force at light middleweight.

19 year-old Nenkov has recorded two victories in his homeland this year but lost when he fought on these shores in March. The Razgrad resident was stopped by Kris Agyei-Dua in an International Masters Light Middleweight contest.

Tickets are priced at 30 and 60 Ringside and are available from Walsall Town Hall Box Office on 0845 111 2900. The aftershow party takes place at the Pitch Sports Bar and Grill on Bridge Street, Walsall. The weigh-in also takes place at The Pitch at 1pm on Thursday (15th).

The show will also be aired live and exclusive on BBC WMs DAB Digital Service and online at
