NAMIBIA’S Julius Indongo shocked the boxing world when he flattened Eduard Troyanovsky in one round last December. The new IBF world super lightweight champion says the win was no fluke and promises it to prove it on April 15 when he meets Scotland’s Ricky Burns in a 140lb. unification bout. Read on to hear what else he had to say ahead of the biggest fight of his career.

A win over Ricky Burns could really put you on the map. Is there any added pressure for this fight?

There is the obvious natural expectation to see a good fight and we know the world is waiting to answer one question, whether I’m a good fighter or if my last win was a fluke. We are not going out there to prove anything to anybody, we are coming to fight and collect another belt.
