BRADFORD’S Amin Jahanzeb is confident that a title shot is within his sights in 2020.

The 23-year-old has racked up an undefeated record in his six fights since turning pro.

Jahanzeb wants the chance to prove that he has the quality to compete with the best fighters on the scene, not only on a regional level but on a domestic one.

The 23-year-old pointed out that the central area title, which is contested by fighters hailing from the likes of Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cheshire, is one that he has his eye on once he and his team decide on his correct weight.

The featherweight version of the belt is currently vacant while Preston resident Michael Ramabeletsa holds the super bantamweight strap.

The Bradfordian, who will make his eighth professional appearance on Saturday, has a clear plan for the next 12 months.

He said: “It is not about getting out as many times this year, it is about getting the quality fights.

“I want hard step-ups to improve me as a fighter. I don’t want to fight ‘journeymen’ anymore, I want to fight contenders and prospects like me.

“I don’t want to overlook my next opponent, but I want a title shot and I believe there is one waiting.

“I am going to be a super bantam or featherweight, it is between them two. We are just going to see after this fight what the best option is and go with that. Whichever big door opens we will barge through it.”

Jahanzeb takes on the experienced Brett Fidoe in a six rounder at Rotherham’s Magna Centre this weekend.

The young fighter thinks he will be able to dispatch the ‘Threat’ fairly easily and move onto bigger and better things in the near future.

Jahanzeb added: “He (Fidoe) is a gate keeper now so he is just a little test they have thrown at me before I get a title shot.

“I have asked for three or four guys with better records but sometimes they are unavailable. This is a guy who has stepped up.”
