Luke Wilton is on the verge of something special.
The east Belfast Flyweight faces Galin Paunov tomorrow night at the Holiday Inn in Belfast.
Wilton – has been on the verge of a title shot for some time now – will fight for a major title at the Ulster Hall on October 13 but he is taking nothing for granted.
“This guy will be a tough test. He is a tall southpaw and he will be tricky,” he said.
“Yes, we are looking to fight for a major title at the Ulster Hall but I have to win at the Holiday Inn.
“I can take nothing for granted and I have to win. It’s as simple as that.
“We have prepared professionally and we are ready for this fight. It will be a tough test.”
And Wilton says training has gone well in preparation for the fight.
“I am back training at the Eastside Gym. It’s good because I can just walk to the gym,” he added.
“I am training under Bernardo Checa and things are going well. I am ready for this fight and then we set our sights on the bill at the Ulster Hall.”
Wilton will be joined on the packed bill by brother Matthew. James Tennyson, William Thompson, Marc McCullough and Brendan Fitzpatrick.

Meanwhile, talented Belfast fighter Jamie Conlan is out of the show at the Odyssey Arena on September 22.
Conlan was supposed to fight on the undercard of the Carl Frampton clash against Steve Molitor.
The former St John Bosco fighter has a back injury and it is a setback for the Flyweight.
