JORDAN Flynn is looking to take full advantage of being on the undercard for Anthony Joshua’s comeback fight next week.

The Cowley boxer will take to the ring against Kane Baker at the O2 in London on April 1.

Lightweight Flynn boasts an 8-0 winning record since turning professional, however the bout against Baker will be by far the biggest challenge and fight of his career so far.

He told the Oxford Mail: “It’s going to be a sell-out with 20,000 people there so it doesn’t get any bigger than this.

“All the media will be there and it’ll be a mad night.

“I’m just focusing on myself though. Behind all the cameras, it’s still a fight so I’m focusing on that.

“I’ve always pictured myself getting to this stage so it’s not something that’s new to me.

“It’s a massive opportunity, everyone in the boxing world will be watching.

“You’ve got to enjoy the build-up and the moment, it’s a whole fight week with the press conference and weigh-in so you’ve got to enjoy it.”

Flynn is well aware Baker will provide a stern test, but he is confident in his own abilities.

“It’s a step up 100 per cent. He’s a good opponent, who’s an experienced fighter,” said Flynn.

“I know he’s definitely going to be a tough opponent.

“We were sent four to choose from and some of them might’ve been easier but I’m on the big stage so I wanted to get the most from this opportunity.

“I may as well beat someone worthy and announce myself on the stage.

“He comes to win his fights and he’s pretty decent.

“I know the level I’m at though and the coaches who see me sparring every day know that too.

“You’ve got to keep elevating and taking steps, and these are the types of guys I need to be beating to get to where I need to be.”

Flynn is also passionate about raising the profile of boxing in his home city, something being on the Joshua undercard will almost certainly do.

“It’s massive for my family and everyone, and the city of Oxford too – we’re making proper moves now,” he said.

“It’s about me really announcing myself on the boxing scene.

“I want to show that people from Oxford can do this, there’s some good fighters here.

“There’s not many to have done it in the boxing world and it’s something that makes me proud.”
