MARK Heffron wants to end the year with a big fight after making short work of his latest opponent.

The Oldham middleweight dispatched of Rui Manuel Pavanito inside a round at the First Direct Arena in Leeds on Saturday night to pick up his 24th professional win.

Now the 27-year-old hopes to be back out on November 30 in Birmingham and is targeting a long-awaited clash with Jason Welborn.

The pair should have fought at the end of last year but Welborn, then the British champion, vacated his title to travel to America where he came up short in a world title challenge against Jarrett Hurd.

Heffron would go on to lose to his replacement Liam Williams, the win over Pavanito the latest stage in his rebuild.

"You don't get paid for overtime," he said.

"I wanted to get some rounds in before getting the stoppage but it came early.

"My manager (Kevin Maree) has mentioned November 30 and Jason Welborn and it's a fight I really want.

"It's a big show already and it would be great to get on it.

"He didn't want to lose the British title to me last year so it would be great to get the fight on."

Heffron is set to be straight back to work, returning to the gym with trainer Robert Rimmer at the Phoenix Camp in Manchester on Wednesday with it being a relatively quick turnaround if he is to fight at the end of November.

“I had a fight scheduled before moving onto the Frank Warren one in Leeds so it ended up being a 12-week camp for the last fight," said Heffron.

"I've had a couple of down days but am already back in the gym ticking over and will go hard at it next week.

"Fighting at the end of November would be great.

"I don’t want to be out in December like I was last year (December 22 against Liam Williams). It means training all around Christmas and that only comes once a year for the kids.”
