Confident rising boxing star Shafqat Khan says he ‘will definitely win’ when he competes at the second biggest championships in Britain this weekend.

Aylesbury fighter Khan will be stepping into the ring at the CYP National Championships in Harrow on Sunday.

Khan has been handed the toughest draw first and knows he will have to be on top form to progress.

But one thing the promising puglisit does not lack is self belief.

He said: “I have been training so hard for this fight with my uncle, coaches in London and in sparring with Nathan (Graham, professional Aylesbury boxer)!

“I will definitely win!

“I’ve got an early weigh-in on Thursday and then fight on Sunday!

“I’ve got the hardest draw first which I’ll need to win which is the London region and then I will fight all the other champions of the various counties and regions.”
