Sheffield prospect Scott Jenkins wants a title by the end of 2014.

“I want to be stepping it up now and looking towards a title fight. An Area title would be great” the 23-year-old lightweight said. He fights on a Hatton Promotions’ card at Ponds Forge on April 26.

“I’ve only done six rounds so far, but my manager, Richard Poxon, is thinking about moving me up to eight-rounders and I want to get more rounds under my belt before moving on. I think I can do long fights easily so I reckon I’ll be knocking on doors for a title. When I’m 24 I’ll be really going for it and aiming for the British.”

Adam Etches will fight his first Mexican on the same bill: Felipe De la Paz Teniente (W12 L1.)
