Pauly Upton is adamant he can spring a surprise at York Hall on June 6 by relieving Ted Cheeseman of his WBA light-middleweight ranking title.
Upton boasts an unbeaten record of 15-0-KO3 heading into the contest and while he accepts he’s yet to face a fighter as good as Cheeseman (13-0-KO8), insists the step up will inspire him to new heights in performance.
