Joe Sherriff is set for a speedy return on Saturday – and he hopes a victory there can potentially lead to big domestic fights later in the year.
Sherriff (13-1) was victorious last month in Spain, and now heads to his hometown of Coventry for a fight this weekend. He’s glad to be fighting again so soon, and is targeting big things in 2019.
He said: “It’s great to be fighting again so quickly after my last fight. The show is called ‘The Homecoming’ and the title suits perfectly for me.
“I fought three weeks ago in Spain and I’m based in Marbella now, so it’s going to be good to fight in Coventry.
“After this fight I’m looking to get myself back in the mix and I’m ready for anybody. After I fought Jake Ball I wanted to stay at that level but couldn’t for one reason or another, but now I want to test myself and fight the best.
“When the opportunity presents itself I’ll be ready. I know what I’m capable of and I know I’ve got the substance to mix it with the big boys.
“I’ve developed well in my career and ticked a lot of boxes. I’ve done my apprenticeship, and after my fight on Saturday it’s going to be full steam ahead.”
