This Saturday Kevin Mitchell will be hoping he can get amongst the glory boys in the lightweight division.

At the O2 Arena in London, the West Ham supporting Mitchell will be fighting for the vacant WBC Silver lightweight title. His opponent will be Daniel Estrada, a fighter who will climb into the ring with a record that reads 32-3-1 with 24 wins coming by way of a knockout.

Mitchell will be hoping that this time it will be a path to world title glory with the 30 year-old remarking,

?I have been fighting now for 20 years and my dream has always been to be a world champion ? now is the time for that shot at the title.

?I am mature now. I have no longer got any boyish ways about me and I am ready for that title. Time is running out. I have 40 fights. If I can get that world title, then I might have another three or four more years left in the game to make some serious money and call it a day.

?Right now it?s make or break for me, I know that and that?s what makes it more interesting.

?If I can?t beat this kid, I might as well go and get a day job. If I lose this, there won?t be much more left in the sport for me. So it?s 100 per cent a fight I have to win and I really do fancy myself to beat him. My maturity of mind will be a strong asset for me.?

Let?s hope Mitchell can pull this one off, or it really will be the end of the road.
