“I know I’m talented enough to win this belt,” Liam Taylor says as he prepares to face David Avanesyan for the European welterweight title on Saturday.
Liam Taylor believes his welterweight opponent David Avanesyan is overhyped and vows to take the European belt this weekend.
In February, Avanesyan improved his status by knocking out highly-rated contender Josh Kelly in the sixth round.
Taylor, on the other hand, is convinced that he will pull off a shocking upset on Saturday, on the Chris Eubank Jr card at The SSE Arena in Wembley.
“I believe people are maybe hyping him up a little bit because of the Josh Kelly fight,” Taylor told Sky Sports.
“I feel I would have defeated Josh Kelly in the same manner, so it would be the same.” It is the opportunity to become a European champion that motivates me.
“I’m focused, and I know I’m good enough to win this championship.”
Avanesyan, who has knocked out his previous four opponents, has successfully defended his European title three times.
But the British challenger, who has 23 victories and only one loss in his career, is upbeat as he prepares for the biggest fight of his career.
“I’ve put myself in a situation where I’m prepared, and this chance presented itself.” “There was no way I was going to say no,” he explained.
“I just want to be involved now and again.” I’m going in knowing he can punch, so I’ll have to be conscious of that from the start, but I believe I can punch enough to have him stand off me.
“I enjoy training and working out in the gym.” My life revolves around boxing or training. I don’t really go out or party; I really love the gym and competitiveness. “I’m a competitive individual.”
