|Jamie Arlain (right) after sparring with James DeGale|
Arlain who has been sparring with Olympic Gold medalist and gym mate James DeGale this week in preparation for his baptism into the paid ranks, is certainly not short on self belief and ambition, as he looks to reach the top and realise his childhood dream of being a world champion.
Jamie’s opponent will be the experienced Bulgarian journey man Danny Dontchev. Jamie would like to dedicate his pro debut fight to the family and friends he lost last year.
It’s a massive change, I’ve gone pro with Terry Stewart a really good trainer and my manager is Michael Amoo-Bediako. My promoter is Steve Goodwin and I am training up the Lough Academy sharing the gym with pros James DeGale. John McDermott, Steve O’ Meara, Michael Norgrove and Greg Barton.

I am a southpaw, so most people find me really tricky, I am 5,7 so I like to work mostly inside to body and head.
Has a kid I’ve always had the dream about going pro, being a world champion – my dream and goal is to be British champion and then world champion. I would love to see myself in the ring with Ricky Hatton!
It’s got to be David Haye he’s exciting to watch and I like his work.
Danny Dyer – Cause he’s a Eastend lad and is a legend in what he does.
