Alejandro Gonzalez Jr is not taking to the ring in El Paso in the USA on Saturday night to make up the numbers.
The Mexican super-bantamweight sees this as his big opportunity to claim a World title as he challenges Carl Frampton for the Belfast fighter’s IBF belt.
And Gonzalez Jr says he is not intimidated by the knock-out power of ‘The Jackal’ and he expects a tough battle.
“I don’t think it’s going to be a fight, I think it’s going to be a war.
“I’m an intelligent fighter. I’m not like one of those Mexicans who like to get in there and take punches.
“I always take care of myself. People say I’m very difficult to fight against.
“People that I fight, people that I spar, they say I’m a very difficult fighter and I punch hard.
“I think I had boxing in my blood. I’ve dreamt and dreamt all my life of being a champion like my father,” he added.
