Jack Cullen, nicknamed “Little Lever’s Meat Cleaver,” is set to take a run at the Commonwealth middleweight title on Saturday, when he faces Felix Cash on the Taylor-Linardatou card, which will stream live on DAZN.

Cullen (17-1, 8 KO) is the underdog, but Cash (11-0, 7 KO) is not an overwhelming favorite, either, and the 25-year-old Cullen will have some advantages. Cash isn’t a small middleweight, standing 6’1”, but Cullen is a towering guy at 160 at 6’3”, and he thinks he can use his jab effectively.

“I feel really good at the moment and everything is going to plan,” said Cullen. “I am seen as the underdog going into this fight but I’d rather it was that way. He says that he is levels above me but I have no idea where he has got that from.

“On paper Felix is probably the toughest boxer that I have fought but we will see when I’m jabbing his head off. He is going to get his ass whipped and I’m confident of that, I have fought better fighters than he has and that will show on the night.

“I am ready for a tough fight, I know it is going to be hard but I have trained really hard for this and had great sparring in the build-up with Scott Fitzgerald. He brings the belt and it’s on the line and he’s going to be fighting to keep it as I will be fighting to take it, the best man will win on the night.

“I’ve wanted to fight for the Commonwealth for a long time, it’s a big one! It would mean a lot to me to win this belt, I’ve got the English belt that’s a stepping stone, this is also and it’s the British title that I want next! I have just got to keep winning if I want to get there.”
