CHRIS KONGO is promising a “brutal” win over his next opponent when he fights at York Hall this Saturday.

Bermondsey’s ‘2Slick’ faces Sam Omidi in Bethnal Green as he aims to extend his record to 9-0.

Kongo, 25, caught the eye when he defeated Serge Ambomo at the 02 Arena in Greenwich in March.

And he is determined to dispatch Omidi as he prepares under new coach Jimmy Mac.

“Training is going well, grafting as usual and getting the rounds in sparring. I’m training with Jimmy Mac now and it’s all going well,” Kongo said.

“I’m always ready. He’s a durable guy but a few of my people have stopped him. He’s about to take another ‘L’ and this one will be brutal.

“After I get Sam Omidi out of the way I’m looking to step up again. I’m looking at Southern Area, English, British [titles]. Wherever, let’s go, I’m ready.

“Boxing is a business and you have to choose your coach wisely, choose someone that’s really going to guide you.

“I picked someone that’s got experience, someone that’s been there. I thought Jimmy Mac was the one, we gelled well and are gelling well right now.

“But we’ve still got a long way to go.”
