TALK to Toowoomba-trained boxer Les Sherrington and you can easily tell how excited he is at the opportunity to take on big name in Australian boxing Sam Soliman.

Sherrington (33-6, 19KO) will take on Soliman (42-11, 17KO) at the Melbourne Pavilion on Wednesday, December 11, in the fight he says he has been waiting for a long time.

It will not only be his chance to hold the WBA Pan-Asian Boxing Association interim middleweight title but also announce to Australian boxing he is the No.1 in the division in the country.

This is the fight Ive been waiting for ever since I laced on a pair of gloves for the first time, he said ahead of his final training session in Toowoomba yesterday.

Its the biggest fight of my career and Ive been training accordingly.

Im in the best shape of my life. Brendon (Smith) has got me going unreal at the moment and I cant wait to put in into work on Wednesday night.

Im itching to get in the ring and step in there with the No.1 middleweight in the world and come up trumps. I just cant wait to show not just the Australian public but the world what sort of boxer Ive become.

Im not going down there just to fight him, Im going down there to win. Im not going there for the pay day or whatever, Im going there for the win.

Sherringtons trainer Brendon Smith thinks it is time for the Townsville-raised, Gold Coast-based boxer training out of Smiths Newtown gym.

The effort Les has put in over the last nine weeks is incredible, Smith said. Were confident we can do this. Im confident Les can pull this off.

Hes in great shape. I believe his powers up. I believe hes stronger and hitting a lot harder, and technically has improved as well. Were looking forward to it.

Weve shouted out for a while that we believe weve got the No.1 middleweight in the country.

We get the opportunity to show it and hopefully we come up trumps.

Sherrington is preparing for anything out there on Wednesday night.

I dont have just one game plan, Sherrington said.

Hes like a tin of spaghetti. Hes got (stuff) going everywhere and thats no disrespect to him. Thats just the way he fights.

Hes got arms and legs going all over the place. Hes here one second and over there, and then over there.

Hes very unorthodox so to have one game plan against Sam Soliman, youd be an idiot.

You need to have 100 game plans.
