Steve O'Meara has targeted a perfect 10 out of 10 for his professional career by the end of the year.

The West Drayton man's next outing comes on the undercard of Jon Thaxton's first defence of his European lightweight title in Norwich on February 28 when he hopes to rack up his sixth successive win.

If all goes to plan in the following 10 months the 25-year-old, whose most recent success was a points win against Nottingham's Matt Scriven in December, will start to think about winning titles.

"I'm happy to go with the flow for the time being and I don't worry too much about who I'm fighting," said O'Meara. "I feel I'm improving all the time and I try and spar with anyone and everyone, short, tall, boxer, fighter, southpaw or orthodox because I don't have as much amateur experience as a lot of the other pros starting out.

"By the end of the year I'd like to think I'll be 10 and 0 and ready to challenge for my first title.

"This next fight in Norwich will be my first six-rounder and I'm looking forward to it because although I'm not a one punch knockout artist I feel I'm the type of guy who can grind people down so when I start doing the longer distances I think you'll see me starting to wear guys down with pressure."

Other boxers lined up for the night include Danny McIntosh taking on Matthew Barney for the English light heavyweight title (subject to approval), new heavyweight sensation Tyson Fury, Matthew Thirlwall, Lee Purdy, Earl Ling and making his pro debut, 2008 ABA senior featherweight champion Bradley Evans.
