Your Sport Swindon talks to boxer Jamie Cox as he reflects on his last fight and looks ahead to a potential world title shot in 2016.

The Swindon super middleweight and WBO European champion was delighted with his last performance which saw him stop Ferenc Albert in just 68 seconds in Dublin.

It was Cox’s third consecutive first round knockout and the former Walcot amateur star hit back at suggestions that he needs to get more rounds in ahead of a world title shot.

Cox also reiterated that he fears no boxer in the super middleweight division and is confident that promoter Frank Warren will deliver the big fights for him next year.

The victory in Dublin was 29-year-old Cox’s 20th straight professional win – a record that is similar to that of another English super middleweight Callum Smith.

And a clash against Smith, who won the British title earlier this month, is a fight Cox would relish with the Swindon boxer predicting he would knock out the Liverpudlian.

Any such fight though will not happen until the new year now according to Cox, who looks set to return to action in January or February time.
