2016 Olympic bronze medal winner Joshua Buatsi (6-0, 4 KOs) is ready to take a step up in class and the target on his hit list is domestic puncher Anthony Yarde (15-0, 14 KOs), who holds the WBO European light heavyweight title.
Yarde is already rising up the ranks and he's a few fights away from being in position for a world title eliminator.
Buatsi, who turned pro last July, is looking to face bigger and better opponents in the near future.
Although he's never faced anyone even close to the danger level of Yarde, Buatsi wants to satisfy the public by getting him in the ring.
Buatsi holds the edge with amateur experience, but Yarde has the advantage in the professional ranks.
"The public want me to go against Yarde. It's a fight in demand so that is the one I want. It's good because the public interest is there, everyone is calling for it. I know that it's one that will captivate and intrigue fans so let's get it on," Buatsi told Sky Sports.
"We have both been matched well and guided appropriately so far and this would be a great test for us to see where we are really at in our careers. The fans are the ones who would benefit most. Buatsi is coming for you."
Buatsi does not want a potential showdown with Yarde to become another situation like Amir Khan vs. Kell Brook - where the British public has aggressively demanded the contest for several years and it hasn't even come close to happening.
The biggest obstacle will likely be their promotional affiliations. Buatsi is promoted by Eddie Hearn and fights on Sky Sports, while Yarde is handled by rival Frank Warren and competes on BoxNation/BT Sport.
"You look at situations like the one with Kell Brook and Amir Khan where the public demand has been there for years and it still hasn't happened - I don't want that to be the case here," Buatsi said.
"I still think that if we saw Khan and Brook announced this week, people would lose their mind over it and want to watch it. It could just come down to mine and Yarde's teams as to whether it's better to take it now or later on. He's a London boy so that local rivalry adds to the fire, I'm just excited by the whole prospect."
