Sam ‘Speedy’ Sheedy says he wants to take on more dangerous opponents - with Bradley Pryce top of his list.

The 26-year-old light middleweight has had only 13 fights since turning pro in 2008 and wants to start taking risks with his currently unbeaten record.

He had been slated to meet Welsh warrior Pryce previously but was forced to pull out with a virus. Sheedy is back in action at Doncaster Racecourse (November 7) and hopes a victory will propel him back towards a contest with Pryce, who went 10 rounds with Frankie Gavin and has campaigned at European/Commonwealth level.

He said on video at thestar.co.uk: “In a couple of (domestic) rankings I am number six and five, there are a few (opponents) in the top 10 I’d like to fight. I’d still fight Bradley Pryce, that would be a massive name for me.”

Others on his wish list are Jason Welborn, the West Midlands fighter.
