UNBEATEN super-featherweight contender Liam Walsh will box in an IBF world title final eliminator against Andrey Klimov this weekend and is eager for the step up in class.

Walsh and Klimov are the two highest rated contenders for the title currently held by Jose Pedraza, who outpointed Stephen Smith in April.

Having completed his training camp in Tenerife, the Cromer native – now 30 – feels it is the right time for him to broach onto the world stage.
