Andre Sterling reckons he’s ready to be crowned Southern Area light-heavyweight champion – only 18 months after turning professional.
Promoter Mickey Helliet hopes the 27-year-old from New Cross will challenge Kirk Garvey for the belt on his show at the York Hall in Bethnal Green on Saturday, October 6.
Sterling has won all eight fights – four inside the distance – since turning pro with Brian Lawrence last April.
“I’m ready,” he said. “I’m more than ready.
“I’ve been building and building, seeing a few different styles, getting rounds under my belt and I’m confident I can step up.
“Kirk is a tidy boxer with good fundamentals and I know this is no pushover, but it’s the right time for me to make my move.”
Sterling says he has an unorthodox, keep-them-guessing style he’s been working on since he started going to Fitzroy Lodge ABC as a 16-year-old.
He had a solid, 40-bout amateur career, reaching the last eight of the Elite championship in 2016 before turning over.
Helliet has kept him busy and Sterling believes he can be the next to break through from the London promoter’s small-hall shows after the likes of Darryll Williams and Asinia Byfield.
“If I can get the Southern Area title shot and win it, I will be looking for the British title next,” he said.
“Kirk would be a good scalp for me to have.”
