BOXER George Davey has expressed his excitement at featuring on a third consecutive world title undercard.

Davey will compete on the undercard to Josh Taylor's defence at his WBA 'Super' and IBF super lightweight titles against Apinun Khongsong at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.

The 22-year-old has won both of his two professional fights to date, having featured on the same bills as world title holders Josh Warrington and Zolani Tete in major arenas at Leeds and Birmingham respectively.

"Taylor is at the top of the bill, he's unified world champion and Muhammad Ali Trophy winner," said Davey

"He's a top-class fighter and he's up there with some of best fighters pound-for-pound.

"I'm really excited to be on his undercard, especially to be fighting in his home country, in Glasgow, so there's going to be a lot of noise there in a big arena.

"I'm really excited to be on such a fantastic bill and on another world title bill.

"It's very surreal to be honest. I'm almost expecting to be on world title bills now," he joked.

Davey made his bow in the paid ranks in September having signed a promotional deal with Hall of Famer Frank Warren and his amateur coach Henry Wharton remaining in his team as his trainer and manager.

Reflecting on his first few months as a professional in 2019, Davey said: "I've been happy to get two fights under my belt.

"I enjoyed Christmas and a bit of time off, but it's nice now to have a date and finally get back into the swing of things after a few months out.

"One of the main things I've learned is that it's all about dealing with your emotions and not losing your focus.

"If you're not in the right headspace that your not going to box to your best ability.

"I know that when I'm in the right headspace that I'm going to be an unbelievable fighter.

"Things are coming together now. Sparring is going well, I'm learning new movements and, of course, there's always new things to learn.

"There's always new moves that Henry will bring in. He's not necessarily telling you about them, they just seem to naturally happen on the pads.

"And subconsciously your muscles just get used to them, remember them and it becomes instinct."

Training camp is well underway for Davey, who spent time over in Malta ahead of his ring return.

"Henry rang me up out of the blue when I was in Lanzarote (where he spent most of his childhood before moving back to York) and asked me if I fancied coming over to Malta for a short training camp," he explained.

"In a heartbeat, I said yes. If it's somewhere with the sun shinning and a bit of sparring available, then I'm there.

"For one, it's a new experience to go to a different country.

"And, speaking personally, as a fighter, you're just happier and excited to be abroad.

"Plus, it's good experience to be in against sparring partners from different parts of the world, all of them having their own particular style. Each country seems to have their own unique style.

"In Malta, the fighters were pretty come-forward and they'd rush towards you. Some boxers don't like that, but I do. I like it when your opponents is coming at you and that's when I can bring out my counter-punching."
