STANLEE Wilson admits it would mean the world to him to win the BlackBeard MMA K1 heavyweight title on Saturday.

Wilson, 32, takes on Tadas Digrys for the vacant title on the fifth BlackBeard show at the Magnet Leisure Centre in Maidenhead.

The Slough star believes he is in the best shape he has been in for nearly two years ahead of the main event bout, and is gunning for a knock-out success.

He told the Observer: “I was in the gym on Thursday to go over a gameplan with my corner team.

“My gameplan is very simple, it never changes and is no big secret. I will come out from the first bell, take the centre of the ring, and punch him until I get the knock-out.

“I have spoken to a couple of people that used to train with him but I’ve not seen a video, but I’m not interested. I know what I’ve got and I know that I’m good enough.

“Tadas expects to come out and work his hands, but he isn’t good enough to stop me.

“Each training session has added to the best camp I’ve had in a long while and I feel very confident.”

Wilson continued: “To win the title would mean the world to me, but if I’m not successful it will probably be my last title fight.

I class myself as a family mean and this is my first fight where they’ll be there to cheer me on, so that’s a big incentive to me.

“I feel I’m in the best shape I’ve been for the past 18 months or two years. I don’t feel pressure but I’ve worked hard to do better and I’m more hungry.

“I’ve done very well with ticket sales and sold around 80.”

Doors open at the Magnet Leisure Centre at 3pm with the first fight scheduled for 3.30pm. To purchase tickets call 07467 426669 or email
