Walsall's Steve Gethin is the next name on Amir Khan's hit list, but he believes he has a secret weapon to unsettle the Olympic silver medallist.

The 19-year-old wunderkind Khan is arguably the biggest name in British boxing and his bouts have drawn huge television audiences on a Saturday evening.

And after beating Coventry's Baz Carey in his last outing, Khan will be confident of beating Gethin when they meet in Glasgow on Bonfire Night.

However, Gethin is from strong boxing stock as his two brothers Darren (29) and Martin (21) are also professionals based at Errol Johnson's Wednesbury stable.

Gethin, 27, has only won nine of his 29 fights and is expected to be the the latest casualty who falls by the wayside on Khan's road to stardom.

But Gethin - who has spent most of his career at super-featherweight - is convinced he can pull off one of the biggest shocks in boxing history, albeit with a little help from his siblings.

"I reckon if I take my two brothers in the ring with me, I should beat him," joked Gethin.

"However, it only takes one punch in boxing, so you are always in with a chance.

"It will be fantastic for me as it will put both Walsall and myself in the spotlight. I will probably walk out in a Walsall shirt, and put the town on the map."

Gethin, who works at GKN in Walsall, building drive shafts for a living, isn't expecting a huge following of work colleagues, as he believes the long journey will prove prohibitive.

Nevertheless, there is no chance Gethin will be overawed by his 15 minutes of fame, as he has already fought in front of over 20,000 people.

"I have boxed on the undercard at two Rick Hatton shows, so I am comfortable in front of a big crowd," he continued.

"This is the biggest fight of my career and I can't wait. I intend to size him up in the first round and then take it from there.

"People will talk about the weight difference but I am walking around at ten stone.

"Mind you, I have just returned from a holiday in Cornwall so I am heavier than usual.

"But I started training on Monday and will be ready for Khan by November."
