Ovill McKenzie insists he will not be rattled by the hostile Argentinian crowd he will face IBF world cruiserweight champion Victor Ramirez in front of later tonight [October 2].

The 35-year-old accepted the fight on 11 days notice after Yoan Pablo Hernandez, the original belt holder, could not overcome injury and so Ramirez was elevated to champion.

At the weigh in yesterday, McKenzie scaled 191.2lbs and Ramirez 199.9lbs and the Derby-based Jamaican is ready to do battle.
