KODY Davies has promised to put on a “boxing masterclass” at York Hall tonight as he looks to take another step closer towards a British title fight.

Two fighters with unblemished professional records collide in Bethnal Green when Pontllanfraith’s Davies (9-0) takes on Londoner Chelli (7-0).

Gavin Rees-trained Davies, 25, isn’t short of confidence going into the showdown with Chelli, and the Welshman reckons he is “fitter and stronger than ever”.

The light-heavyweight contest is the first of two eliminators for the British belt in the space of five weeks – Lawrence Osueke and Ricky Summers are set to meet in Newcastle on October 19.

Joshua Buatsi was the champion, however, he has recently vacated, while the super-middleweight strap – Davies’ preferred weight – is also vacant.

Davies has his sights set on winning a Lonsdale Belt, and is hoping he could get a chance this November.

Looking ahead to tonight’s showdown, he said: “I’m fitter and stronger than ever. Me and Gavin have been working hard and I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in.

“I’ve just been training more and sparring more rounds, everything has intensified.

“I’ve sparred with guys like Morgan Jones and Jake Anthony, but it has been pretty hard to get sparring partners, so we’ve had to travel around a bit.

“I’ll just take the fight as it comes. I’ve done the work in training and now it’s time to put it on show and give a boxing masterclass.

“I don’t know a lot about him. I know he’s undefeated – and he’s about to lose.

“He looks pretty raw from the few little clips I’ve seen, but I think I’ll box his head off.

“I’m not really interested in what he can do, we’ve worked on what we are going to do.

“It’s going to be a really classy and silky performance and a lovely win.”

As for what the future holds, he added: “I’m only 25, so I’ll stay at super-middleweight for as long as possible.

“I plan to win this fight and then there’s a conversation to be had about going for the British super-middleweight title in November.”
