BOLTON boxer Osman Aslam is hoping to make it lucky 13 when he looks to extend his 100-per-cent winning professional record in Birmingham tomorrow.

The 24-year-old from Halliwell steps into the ring on the undercard of Amir Khan’s clash with Samuel Vargas aiming for a repeat of the last time he supported his fellow Boltonian – a win in Liverpool in April.

Aslam’s victory against Joe Hernandez on points after four rounds last time out made it 12 wins from 12 and the fighter managed by Joe Gallagher and trained by Alex Matvienko in Bolton is confident of extending his unblemished record this weekend.

Speaking exclusively to The Bolton News, the up-and-coming super bantamweight boxer said: “I am nice and relaxed and can’t wait to get in there.

“Training has been good even though we have had to change styles after my first scheduled opponent dropped out.

“But I am happy with the preparations and hopefully this will be another step on the ladder towards my goal of title fights.”

Aslam admits his dream is to be top of the bill like his idol Khan and fight for world titles at the likes of Wembley Stadium.

And being on the undercard again with the backing of Gallagher and Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn is giving him a taste of that.

He added: “When I was growing up I always watched Amir and to now be on the same bill shows how far I have come thanks to the likes of Alex, Joe and Eddie who all believe in me, not to mention my biggest supporters – my family.

“It’s great to be flying the flag for Bolton like Amir has and with the likes of other good local fighters, such as Jack Flatley and Jack Cullen, it is good for boxing in my home town.

“Hopefully I can represent Bolton well again this weekend.”
