Football: BYWATER: ROBBO NOTHING SPECIAL; BARCLAYS PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham v Derby, today, kick-off 3pm.

Byline: By JAMES NURSEY

BOXING fan Stephen Bywater admits he doesn't think today's rival keeper Paul Robinson is "anything special" and intends to join the fight to become England's No.1.

Spurs ace Robinson, 27, who has 36 caps, is the current pick of national team boss Steve McClaren, but ex-England Under-21 shot-stopper Bywater is not scared of the competition and has set his sights on gaining international recognition by starring for Derby in the Premiership.

And Bywater, 26, revealed he prepared for a crack at the top-flight this summer by watching Ricky Hatton in Las Vegas and plenty of Ultimate Fighting Championship to get in the zone.

"I can relate to boxing and hopefully watching plenty of it can help my game," he said.
