Unbeaten Mexican Gilberto Ramirez insists he is happy to travel to the UK for a Super-Middleweight unification.
On February 3rd, he defends his WBO Title against Habib Ahmed in Texas, live on BoxNation.
Two weeks later, George Groves puts his WBA 'Super' belt on the line against Chris Eubank Jr, with the winner potentially facing another Brit Callum Smith in the Super Series final.
"There are good names at my weight, but I would like to go to England and beat them there, because there is no problem in travelling for these types of fights, against big names," Ramirez told Erika Montoya.
"In those types of fights, the conditions do not matter because I have confidence in what what can I do, in the way we prepare and in my reach - which is why I asked for Chris Eubank, George Groves or Callum Smith. But before I can think about that, the first thing is to retain my title and that is what I hope to accomplish," he added.
Ramirez (36-0, 24 KOs) won the belt against Arthur Abraham in April 2016, earning a unanimous decision in Vegas and has since made two defences.
In his last outing in September, he won a thrilling contest against Jesse Hart, outpointing the American to hand him his first defeat. Now he meets unbeaten Ghanian Ahmed.
"It's a risky fight for me, for my championship, but these are the good fights that people ask for," admitted the 26-year-old. "I want to be a solid Champion and I don't know much about his style, but that's why I've prepared myself hard, for various forms of fighting, because I know he's a tough guy and he will not just give away that zero on his record.
"My goal is to be very active, keep the title on my side and remain undefeated."
