Talking ahead of his impending title showdown against Hutcheon this weekend Akram said: “ This fight is all about me showing people what I can do. People have seen me bang out my first two opponents, but I want them to see my boxing skills and that’s what I’ll be doing on the 25th.
“ So far people haven’t really seen that much of me because my opponents just don’t last that long, but I can box, punch and I am very confident, so I’m looking at making a big statement this time and I’m preparing like a champion to do just that.
"Training wise I started my preparations a lot earlier for this fight and I'm feeling in great shape, and although I don't really know too much about Hutcheon, I'm going in there to knock him out and make a big statement"
