Swindon star Jamie Cox has set his sights on a mouthwatering showdown against British welterweight champion Kell Brook.

Undefeated Brook is just one fight away from winning a Lonsdale belt outright, and has won his title fights in the seventh, first and second rounds.

But his red-hot punching power isn’t deterring Cox, also unbeaten, from demanding a fight - and the 22-year-old star is eying a clash with the Yorkshireman later in 2009.

First he fights in his hometown at Swindon’s Oasis Leisure Centre next Friday against Doncaster warrior Jason Rushton over eight rounds.

And he knows an impressive performance in front of the Sky Sports cameras could move him a step closer to his dream showdown.

“Kell is great fighter but I reckon I will be ready for him later this year,” said stylish southpaw Cox.

“It’s going to be coming to me soon, whenever he’s ready to have the fight.”

And Cox shrugged off the fact he’s just had nine professional outings since turning over in 2007.

“Kostya Tszyu won a world title in his 14th fight,” he said. “I don’t want to run before I can walk, but I know that I will soon be ready for Kell Brook.

“I know it is going to be an exciting fight, the public know it is going to be exciting.

“He should be watching me, he should be studying me to know what I’m about.

“I hit to the body and head just as hard as Kell Brook but I think I have got a much better boxing brain.”
