Frankie Gavin still plans to step down to light-welterweight but is more concerned with big fights than weight divisions.
Britain's only ever world amateur champion will follow up his world title defeat to Kell Brook by facing British and Commonwealth welterweight champion Sam Eggington in their hometown of Birmingham on October 17.
Boxing pundits argue the 29-year-old would be more suited to the light-welterweight division but although Gavin admits that is the long term plan, he is prepared to fight at whichever weight gives him the best chance of achieving his world title dream.
Gavin told Sky Sports: "Getting back down to light-welterweight is the long term plan definitely, but you can't turn these fights down.
"This is massive for boxing in Birmingham and can really set boxing alight again in this city. This has got the makings of a great show.
"I'm just better than him in my opinion and that's no disrespect to Sam. Sam's tough and he's a very good fighter. I rate him. He's good at what he does. Technically he's not great but he's getting better as you can see in his fights.
"It's going to be tough. He's going to be there. We both believe we can win and both wanted the fight and that's what makes a good fight.
"If Eddie Hearn came to me tomorrow and said he'd got me a world title at light-middleweight, I'd say: Sweet! I love fighting and boxing. Once I get big fights put to me I get a buzz when I walk around and just want to be in the ring fighting."
On the undercard of Eggington v Gavin, Matthew Macklin moves down to light-middleweight to take on a former Gavin opponent in Jason Welborn and Kal Yafai faces Jason Cunningham for the British super-flyweight belt.
