Ronnie 'The Shark' Clark believes Zelfa Barrett's team made "a massive mistake" making the February 24th firefight at York Hall.

Just over a month ago, Clark caused a big upset when dropping and outpointing Barrett in London to claim the IBF European belt.

Barrett, who lost his unbeaten record, has called for an instant rematch, but Clark believes the Manchester prospect should be cautious.

"They made a massive mistake taking the fight in the first place. It's crazy. At Super-Featherweight, Zelfa Barrett does not beat me! 

"I thought he performed well, he did things well. Could he perform better? Maybe he could. As I said before the last fight, I don't focus on what my opponents can do, it doesn't interest me," Clark explained on the BoxNation Podcast.

The unpredictable Clark, who sported a leather thong at the weigh-in prior to the Barrett bout, says he is getting better with age: "I know exactly where I'm at. I know exactly where I'm going. I just need the opportunities to prove it. This is the beginning of me! At 33-years-old, I'm progressing.

"I know when I fought Zelfa Barrett, I wasn't at 100%. It wasn't the best Ronnie Clark that you've seen. There was 100% heart, but 70 something percent boxing ability.

"Just looking forward to a date getting set in stone and to be back in the ring. I don't care who I fight. All through my career I've never dodged anybody - I just love fighting," he added.
