Kevin Bizier plans to disrupt Kell Brook's rhythm by getting up close and personal when they meet on March 26.
Brook (35-0-KO24) defends his IBF welterweight belt against mandatory challenger Bizier (25-2-KO17) live on Sky Sports later this month and will go into the hometown fight as a huge favourite.
But the Canadian is determined his world title dream will not end in anticlimax and has worked out a gameplan to cramp the champion's style.
"I'm going to give 100 per cent on March 26," he said. "I will give everything in the ring for this fight. I don't want to regret anything, I don't want to leave that ring knowing I didn't give it all when fighting for a world title.
"To win rounds and spoil Brook's party, I'll have to apply constant pressure to him and get in his face. I've worked a lot on my inside work as I cannot stay at the end of his jab.
"Brook is a big hitter who manages distance well, I'll have to get into the pocket. Boxing inside will give me a better chance to win.
"I know the fans are going to scream for him, but I will block that out. If Brook gets carried away by the emotion of the crowd, it could play into my hands - I intend to give value for money."
Brook has defended his title twice since taking it from Shawn Porter, stopping Jo Jo Dan a year ago and recording a comfortable win over Frankie Gavin two months later.
