Hellraiser Boxing - Leytonstone super-lightweight Philip Bowes is planning to become the No 1 contender for the Southern Area championship.
The belt is currently held by Rakeem Noble and Bowes has plans to take it off him by the end of the year.
The 31 year old southpaw has put together three straight wins since joining Hellraiser Promotions - and is back in the ring next month.
He's matched with Belfast's tough James Gorman over six rounds - and sees the fight as a stepping stone to another shot at the Southern Area title.
Bowes, beaten on points by Johnny Coyle when he fought for the belt a year ago, said: "I'm trying to get into the mandatory position for the Southern Area title. 
"I know I'm a difficult opponent for anyone and want to make it so the champion has to fight me.
"I was at ringside when Noble won the title and that's a fight I want.
"I'm hoping the fight can happen by the end of the year. I've just got to keep winning and see what comes up."
Bowes says his gym mates are bringing the best out of him as he prepares for the 15th fight of his professional career.
He trains at the Limehouse Marina with Barry Smith and Harry Andrews - and his sparring partners include Larry Ekunadyo.
He's currently ranked in the top 30 by the WBC and defends his African Boxing Union welterweight title in the top-of-the-bill fight on next month's show.
Bowes said: "It's great sparring. It's like a chess match. We are always trying to trick each other into making mistakes."
Tickets for the show at the York Hall are available from 07932 064548.
