Darren Barker gets the second crack at a world title this weekend when he takes on IBF middleweight champion Daniel Geale in at the Revel Casino-Hotel in Atlantic City on Saturday night.

Barker (25-1, 16 KOs) fell short in his first shot at a world title, suffering a stoppage defeat against Sergio Martinez in 2011 after a good effort, but feels that the experience will help him succeed this time against Geale (29-1, 15 KOs).

The Londoner feels he is now reaching his physical and mental peak, he feels he has the Australian champions number and will show it on the night. Barker admits he had concerns prior to his clash with Martinez, who is considered one of the best in the sport, but his creditable display gave him new-found confidence and he is ready to prove it.

Speaking to the media in America this week Barker said he feels it is his time and he cannot see Geale beating him, watch the video above for the full interview courtesy of TheRingDigital
