Battersea's Bradley Skeete has expressed his desire to pursue a rematch with European welterweight champion Kerman Lejarraga, writes Ziad Chaudry.

The 31-year-old former Earlsfield ABC representative returned to winning ways with emphatic third round stoppage over Mexico's Fernando Valencia last Saturday at Brentwood Centre, Essex.

Skeete hopes that his promoter Frank Warren will get him a title bout of some sort on the massive BT Sport Box Office bill in Manchester on December 22 before possibly meeting the unbeaten Spanish Lejarraga, who defends his European mantle next month against former British champion Frankie Gavin, again next year.

Lejarraga, 26, stunned the South Londoner in two rounds back in April at his hometown of Bilboa, Spain.

"I want to be out in December for a title and get back to where I was," said Skeete. "I want to challenge for that European title again and I want to get back to that level.

"That wasn't me out in Bilboa. Everyone who knows me and seen that fight knows that wasn't me. I needed to come back and have a clinical performance like that and to get someone out of there that quick who has never been stopped was great."

Skeete advanced to 28 wins in 30 outings and now looks to bigger fights, including the rematch with Lejarraga or even possibly Gavin, providing the Birmingham-based fighter defeats the man they call 'The Revolver'.

"I don't want to fight domestic level because I've passed that," Skeete added. "I want to fight European and World level and get back to where I was.

"I want this rematch. Get him over here this time and we'll go again."
