Derek Chisora says he wants Norwich's Sam Sexton - for the second time.
The newly crowned British champion is on a collision course with the Commonwealth king, and is confident of victory.
Chisora thumped Danny Williams in two rounds to lift the Lonsdale belt last month and now he is eager for a first defence against Sexton.
If the pair do meet it will be a re-match of their York Hall meeting two years ago. Then the Finchley fighter won in the sixth, and he's confident he can repeat the trick.

'I said when I beat Williams that I would fight anyone in Britain, and that includes Sexton,' said Chisora. 'I've beaten him once and I'll beat him again if I have to fight him.
'He's a nice guy but can he take my power? I think we saw the last time we fought that he can't.

'I'll respect him if he gets in the ring with me, but it's the same result if we have a re-match. In fact, this time I think I'll knock him clean out rather than just stopping him.
'Everyone keeps talking about how much Sexton has improved in the last couple of years, but what about me?
'Sam got to fight for a title before I did, but I'll end up going further.'
