Hamzah Sheeraz has revealed that he is inspired by the idea people are doubting him ahead of the biggest test of his career.

Unbeaten in 13 fights, the 22-year-old, from Slough, faces Bradley Skeete at the Copper Box Arena tomorrow evening. The fight will be shown live on BT Sport.

"It is a great fight, I am looking forward to it and it is definitely the biggest fight of my career," said Sheeraz, "Experience-wise, in terms of rounds, knockouts, titles - he has ticked all the boxes. If you compare my record to his, I've ticked barely anything and he has ticked nearly everything.

"It is going to be an amazing fight and I am more than confident that I am going to get the job done. I've had a great camp and I am honestly buzzing."

Skeete, a former British and Commonwealth champion, has 29 wins and only three defeats on his record. However, the 34-year-old has fought only once since 2018 but has dismissed the notion he is past his best.

Despite his opponent’s inactivity Sheeraz is expecting to be tested by his South London rival.

“I am kind of expecting the best version of him because it is his last chance,” he added.

"If I was to knock him out between three and six, or even the 10th, it would be a great achievement.”
