Super bantamweight Sinclair believes he'll one day fight for the British title 

Super bantamweight fighter Aaron Sinclair says he has full belief in his ability as he prepares for his fourth pro fight next month.

Sinclair, who will take on an opponent on ‘home turf’ at the Magnet Leisure Centre on Saturday, November 2, has the Southern Area Title in his sights, but says his ambitions stretch much further than that.

In his last fight in Watford back in March, Sinclair outfought and outthought opponent Russ Midgley over four rounds, taking a unanimous decision from the judges. And, if things continue to go to plan under manager and event promoter Robert Lloyd Taylor, he’ll be fighting for the Southern Area Title in the spring of next year.

“I’ve got full belief in my ability,” said the

24-year-old fighter from Cox Green.

“I want to get the Southern Area belt next year, but I believe I can go much further than that. That’s just something I’ve got to get past along the way. If people could see how much I’ve improved in the last year, I’ve come on leaps and bounds since turning pro and I’d like to think I can go for the British title.”

On the bill at the Rebirth event at the Magnet next month will be sparring partners from his gym, and Sinclair says they’ve been pushing each other to the limit in training.

Sinclair will turn 25 in March next year and he’s hoping to celebrate by winning the Southern title.

“That would be a nice way to celebrate,” he said.

“I’ve won all three of my professional fights by unanimous decision and dominated the last one from start to finish.

“We’ve now got a professional deal to do local shows in Maidenhead, which means we don’t have to travel into London with the fans. It will be good to have a few fights at home. This will likely be my last four-round fight before moving on to six or eight-round fights. The plan is to do a couple of those in the new year and then go for the Southern Area title in March time.

“Training has been going really well. The other lads there will also be fighting in the same show. It helps to have all these guys from the same stable and we’ve pushed each other to the limit.”
