Northern Irish middleweight Eamonn O'Kane believes victory against the unbeaten Lewis Taylor on Saturday will move him closer to a shot at a world title.
O'Kane, who turned professional after winning gold at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, is ranked seventh in the IBF rankings and the 33-year-old believes victory in Lavey would move him up to second or third.
Taylor, 25, is from Dronfield in Derbyshire and has won 16 and drawn the other of his 17 pro contests.
