This is a major opportunity for me, and I will not return home without the belt.
After experimenting at heavyweight and fight against Tyson Fury, I am now back to my ideal weight where I remains unbeaten.
My last draw against the top 5 rated Firat Arslan shows my hunger and resolve to become the IBO champion of the world.

lost to Tyson Fury

Loads of people the so called "experts" said early in my career I would never be a championship level fighter, I won’t make it blah blah blah . I had no amateur fights. Yes I stumbled along the way but there were certain people who always believed I could accomplish great things. Most importantly I believed in me. With true self belief , 7 years of hard work I look back on with extreme pride.
