Harvey Horn is eyeing a shot at the British flyweight title, ahead of his return to action at the SSE Arena on Saturday night.
Horn (8-0, 2 KOs) ends an almost two-year lay-off when he faces Adam Yahaya (21-6-2, 10 KOs) on the undercard of Chris Eubank Jr’s clash against Anatoli Muratov, live on Sky Sports.
The undefeated southpaw insists he is targeting a showdown against recently-crowned British champion, Tommy Frank should he come through successfully against 31-year-old, Yahaya.
“I haven’t been beat domestically since I was 15, amateur or professional,” Horn told proboxing-fans.com at Thursday’s press conference.
“So that’s over 10 years I’ve had undefeated, but as a pro I want to get this one out of the way and then I mean Tommy Frank just won [the British title].
“Nice geezer, I like him from what I’ve seen of him, but I’ll be honest that is my goal next after this.”
At the top of the ladder, Sunny Edwards holds the IBF flyweight world title following his unanimous decision victory over former two-time titlist, Moruti Mthalane in April and Horn admits that is a fight he would relish in the future.
“Hopefully I get that shot [at the British title],” the 25-year-old added.
“Take that and then we go [onto] bigger and better things.
“Domestically he’s a world champion, for me, for boxing especially for the light boys it would be great.”

In his last outing in November 2019, the Essex man claimed the vacant WBO European flyweight crown with a unanimous decision victory over Ijaz Ahmed.
Horn, who is trained by Mark Tibbs signed with Wasserman Boxing in July and is confident of becoming the third man to stop Yahaya, who was halted by Andrew Selby in 2018.
“I feel like getting violent,” Horn said on Saturday’s fight.
“I’ve just seen my opponent. I’ve got a bit of height on him.
“I’m going to go and say I’m going to get him out of there, I’m quite sure he’s going to go.”
