Staff leaner; Boxer Shorts.

MIKE STAFFORD has predicted his knockout power will increase as he drops down to the light-heavyweight division.

The 28-year-old from Southport will engage in a catch-weight bout at the Olympia on December18, before making the change to light-heavy in February.

He says: "Coming down in weight, my power is going to improve. I am used to hitting big heavyweights and hurting them so now, when I hit a guy flush on the chin, touch wood, they won't get back up."
