Lewis Paulin travels to the famous York Hall this weekend to take on the experienced British champion Ryan Walsh.

Paulin is undefeated so far, 12-0 since turning pro in 2015. He won the Scottish Featherweight title in 2017 but there can be no doubt this is Paulin's toughest test to date.

Walsh is making his sixth defence of the British title and it's fair to say a Paulin victory would be considered a shock.

Paulin expects the pressure to be all on Walsh as he told me, "I feel the pressure is all on him. I'm an underdog looking to cause the upset, so the pressure is on the champion here. He's expected to win."

It might be his biggest test but Paulin cant wait to get into the ring at York Hall.

"Yeah, I'm absolutely buzzing to be fighting for the British title in London on Friday." Paulin said. "Walsh has a lot of history and proved he's a tough guy so I see it going all the way but I'm pretty sure with our styles it's going to be an all action fight.

"This is my first big fight in the spotlight so I'm looking to impress people and catch their attention."

With the training camp done, Paulin feels he has done all he can in the build up.

"The training camps over now and were in a very good position." He explained. "Couldn't have given it any more commitment and more than ready for the fight."

Having tasted the feeling of winning a Scottish title, Paulin expects a British title win would supersede this moment.

"Getting my first title in the professionals was a good moment but I'm sure Friday will top that by quite some."

Lewis Paulin takes on Ryan Walsh as part of MTK Global's show at the York Hall on Friday. Also on the card is Ohara Davies taking on former world champion Miguel Vasquez.
