Just weight and see... I'll be the stronger man when I take on Herring

I've been feeling good working out in the gym

As fans weigh up my fight with Jamel Herring, the one big factor they seem to think will be in the WBO champion's favour is his size along with me moving up a weight division. But, if that's what his supporters think will give him the edge, then they're in for a shock.

I'm not seen as being a natural super-featherweight but I don't think Herring is a natural super-featherweight either.

It applies to both of us for different reasons - I'm moving up and he's squeezing himself into 9st 4lb. At the 2012 Olympics he fought as a light-welter and now nine years later he's a super-feather, so that says a lot.
