Danny Dignum hopes that a victory over Greg O’Neil at York Hall next week can springboard him towards a title fight later in the year.
Dignum (9-0, KO5) steps up to eight rounds for the contest against O’Neil on February 22, and he’s looking forward to displaying his skills.
Dignum said: “In 2019 I’m getting my first title. I’ve got eight rounds coming up against Greg O’Neil and that’s exactly what I need at this stage of my career.
“It’s OK doing the rounds in sparring, but I need to step up and do them in a fight, so I’m really looking forward to this one.
“He’s got a winning record and will come to win so it will be really good for me. Last year was a busy year for me with five fights and three knockouts, so hopefully we can have another successful year.”
The event at York Hall is live on iFL TV, and features a WBO European welterweight title fight between Paddy Gallagher and Freddy Kiwitt in the main event.
There are also a number of talented stars on the undercard, including Dan Azeez, Siar Ozgul, Liam Wells and Huzaifah Iqbal.
