"I was excited to find out about the trip, it will be a massive experience to go to a different continent and spar their top team.

"I want to show I belong at this level," said the three-time England national champion.

"They have got a very good squad out there, and more big fighters than you'd think.

"I have stories about people who have been out there training before and a lot of them tend to get ill from Delhi-belly, so I will have to keep that in mind and take care what I am eating!"

He said the England Boxing organisation was investing heavily in upcoming fighters.

"They are chucking money at it, I think they get it from the national lottery.

"The whole team seven boys and five girls are going."

Stott says he lives and breathes boxing.

"It is all I have ever known. I started boxing as I turned seven, I did football at the same time but packed it in to concentrate on boxing.

"I don't go out much, there are not a lot of other interesting facts about my life its just boxing!"

Stott says favourite fighter is Floyd Mayweather: "Not as a person but for his boxing style..he didn't get hit and is walking around with little or no damage to his brain.

"He did just enough to win every fight - you don't want to take punishment; just showcase your skills."
