LEDBURY'S Alex Florence is looking to dominate his next professional fight at Walsall this weekend.

The unbeaten 20-year-old, who has had two victories so far, will be taking on Ibrar Riyaz at the 'You Asked For It' promotion on Saturday.

“I want to take the work-rate up this time around,” said Florence.

“In the last two I was relaxed and I settled down in my boxing because I didn’t have the best camp with being ill.

"But as long as nothing goes wrong in this camp then I want to pick up the work rate and apply more pressure whilst still keeping relaxed.

"If I can put that all together then it will be a good performance.

"When I am boxing at the Town Hall I am in the changing room with everybody that I know and I feel a lot more comfortable and confident when you have your stablemates around.

“I don’t mind the travelling.

"I had to do it a lot as an amateur so I am used to it.

"Walsall isn’t too far away so I am happy to make the journey and I enjoyed it there last time out.

“It doesn’t affect me not fighting at home and I really like the venue, it is one of the better ones that I have boxed in and you get a good vibe being there.”

Florence says he feels in peak fitness and he wants to improve on his last two performances.

“I am feeling really good,” he said.

“This is the best camp I have had so far.

"I was ill in the middle of both of my last camps so fitness wise I am feeling even better this time.

“Liam Richards is a durable fighter so it was a confidence boost being able to send him to the canvas in my last fight.

"A lot of the lads in the gym have boxed him and they haven’t been able to put him down so I was very happy with that, especially as I switched stances when I did it too.

“I was happy with how that went.

"But I was struggling with a chest infection at the time and that was the reason I couldn’t follow up a lot of my shots.

"Hopefully this time I will be feeling healthy and I can look more impressive."

Florence is coached by his father Fred and says he always demanded the best from him.

“He wants the best for his son and he is so dedicated to helping me so it is great to have him there," he said.

"He is definitely on my case a lot more than other coaches would be but that helps me with my development and improving.”

The Super Lightweight already has around 50 amateur fights to his name and wants to take his time as he looks to enhance his professional career.

“The win would push me on and increase my profile further," said Florence.

“I had around 50 fights in the amateurs so I know that I have the experience but I am only 20 so there is no need for me to rush. I don’t want to rush my career.

“I could box until I am 35 which is a long time and I want to make sure I get everything right and take the right steps.

"Some fighters only have 20-30 fights so if I have 15 years to have that many, then there is no need for me to rush into it."
