McDonnell: This is My Chance To Get My Name Out There

Jamie McDonnell admits fighting for the vacant WBA bantamweight title on the Froch -Groves II undercard at Wembley Stadium could be his opportunity to turn himself into a household name.

The Doncaster fighter will take on Pan Asian boxing champion Tabtimdaeng Na Rachawat in front of the biggest crowd of his career, as he bids to become a two-time world champion.

And speaking from Wembley Stadium ahead of the fight, the 28-year-old insists becoming WBA champion in front of 80,000 fans will give him the platform to kickstart his career.

"It's a massive stage and this is my chance to put my name out there," McDonnell told Sky Sports News.

"There's so many people going to be tuning in on Sky and around the world. It's a massive occasion to show people what I'm about.

"Another world title would make me a two-time world champion. I would never have dreamt that. When I win that world title things will start happening and my career will take off again.

Former IBF champion McDonnell hopes the home crowd will be a factor in helping him beat Thailand's 52-fight veteran Na Rachawat

"The buzz started on Monday with the open workout with Carl Froch and just coming here brings it all into perspective how big it is," he said.

"What a great stadium. I'm going to soak up the atmosphere, but first things first, get that win and put my feet up and watch the main event.

"It can suck you in and take your mind off the job at hand but at the end of the day I'm just here to do a job and win that belt.

"I don't think I'll get drawn in too much. I'm not that type of guy, but I will enjoy it and use it as much to my advantage as I can."

McDonnell believes the main event will be a close contest but is tipping Nottingham's Froch to overcome Groves and retain his WBA and IBF super-middleweight titles.

"Don't get me wrong Groves is a great fighter but I think Froch will get a late stoppage," he added. "I think he's just got too much hunger inside and he'll just want to prove to everyone that he's still got it."
