James Tennyson knows that defeat is not an option when he takes to the ring at the Devenish Complex in Belfast on Saturday night.

Featherweight Tennyson is ranked three in Britain and he knows that a British title shot is on the cards if he can remain unbeaten in the coming weeks.

Tennyson - The Faced Assassin - faces Krzysztof Rogowski at the Belfast venue and he knows a victory can be the only result.

“Two guys are fighting soon for the British title and I want to fight the winner - so I know I cannot make mistakes in any of my fights before that.

“I put in a good performance against Kris Hughes to lift the Celtic title and I want to build on that. I don’t know much about Rogowski, but I am not taking him lightly as defeat would be a disaster,” he added.

Tennyson has only lost once in his 13 fight career after being stopped by Pavels Senkovs at the Odyssey in 2013.

But the Kronk trained fighter says it may have been a blessing in disguise.

“It is never good to lose but I learnt loads that night.

“It has made me train and work harder and I am more focused now than I was before,” he added.

Also on the show Dee Walsh headlines against Patryk Litkiewicz.

Paul Hyland faces Ivans Levickis, James Fryers looks to tame Sergejs Logins who holds a winning record of 8 wins all of which came by KO.

Joe Fitzpatrick debuts against Hungarian Ignac Kassai who is a 60 fight veteran.

Gerard Healy looks to continue his winning run when he meets Pitor Tomaszek and undefeated Tyrone McKenna goes for win number eight and another step up the British rankings as he tackles Sylwester Walczak.

Tickets can be purchased on the door at the Devenish Complex.
