Promoter Barry McGuigan is expecting fireworks when his man, undefeated Josh Taylor, challenges dangerous world champion Ivan Baranchyk for the IBF super lightweight title in Glasgow on Saturday.
The contest is part of the semi-finals of the World Boxing Super Series. The winner will face WBA champion Regis Prograis.
"Despite the fact we believe he didn't want to come to Scotland, he will fight very, very hard," promoter and former champion McGuigan told BBC Scotland. "It's a terrific scrap and Josh will have to be at his very best."
Taylor, rated number two in the tournament, entered the semis after beating Ryan Martin in his quarter-final, while Baranchyk battered Sweden's Anthony Yigit in the first round.
McGuigan expects the champion to make it a war, after getting outboxed in the early stages.
"He'll realise that he can't outbox Josh," McGuigan said. "I think he'll come at him."
McGuigan, a former world champion, does not want Taylor to get lured into a brawl. He wants the skilled fighter to box smart from start to finish.
"It's about being disciplined," McGuigan said. "He has to be cool and calm.
"Josh has to be on the ball from start to finish because this guy will be dangerous for the entire fight. What's important for me is that Josh keeps his head. I think it's best to make it a boxing match and he has to be cautious early on."
"I don't think he was switched on for that fight," he added. "He had a few issues outside of the ring and wasn't as focused as normal. The early rounds weren't going his way either. When you can switch yourself on, and be able to turn it around against a world-class operator like Postol, that just shows you his capabilities. That was the fight that turned it around for him."
