Stephen Simmons readily admits becoming the first Scotsman to win the British cruiserweight title will be extra special if he achieves the feat on English soil on Saturday.
Edinburgh's Simmons (18-2-KO7) is preparing to take on Matty Askin (22-3-1-KO14) at the York Hall and revealed patriotic rivalry is providing extra inspiration ahead of his bid to lift the famous Lonsdale belt.

Predictions for Matty Askin vs Lawrence Okolie
In 2016, Simmons was controversially denied a step up to world level when Noel Gevor was awarded a highly-debatable split decision in Germany. Gevor then suffered similar agony himself at the hands of former WBC world champion Krzysztof Wlodarczyk in Poland.
Reflecting on those frustrations, Simmons added: "I believe I was robbed. So did most of the people in the place that night and all the people I've spoken to who saw the fight on TV.
"Perhaps what happened to Gevor when he went to fight in Wlodarczyk's back yard is a little bit of karma catching up with him because I heard he was unlucky not to get the decision too.
"Once I've done what I'm coming to London to do on Saturday and create history, I'll sit down with my family because I want to live my family life. I've not make a decision beyond this fight."
